Request Assistance

First Steps

The assistance procedure consists of two interviews with the Human Resource Coordinator at our St. Vincent Resource Center. The assistance you receive is based on information you provide us, making it necessary to submit supporting paperwork with your application. After the information is compiled, a second interview will be schedule with two St. Vincent Society members at the office located at the St. Vincent de Paul Community Store.

Please understand that no one is here to judge you or the situation you are in, but we must verify the merit of your need. Based on the information you provide, the Society members will review your requested need and make their decision on what our organization can do. A home visit may be required to complete their decision.

Individuals, families, and households have various  levels of need. Sales from donations received at our store, fund these needs along with other STVDP programs. This way we are able to extend a helping hand to those who meet the eligibility guidelines.
