St. Vincent de Paul (1581-1660) devoted his life to helping people struggling with poverty and hardship. Volunteers in St. Vincent de Paul Louisville’s 43 conferences (based in churches throughout the region) follow his example by fielding calls for assistance from people in need in their own communities.
We are, in fact, the No. 1 referral for all calls to the Metro’s 2-1-1 help line.
SVDP volunteers, referred to as “Vincentians,” offer compassionate, nonjudgmental support to all, as well as emergency financial assistance to help with things like rent and utility bills, and groceries. Join us in this spiritually rewarding outreach!
In addition, many of our volunteers help out in SVDP’s Food Pantry, Open Hand Kitchen and more. (See below)
