St. Vincent de Paul of Contra Costa County helps our most vulnerable neighbors by providing safety-net resources including food, shelter, medical & dental care and employment & training. The SVdP Workforce Development Program is a 24 week, on-the-job training program for individuals who have experienced barriers to employment (incarceration, disability, addiction, etc.) and are looking to reenter the workforce. Classes are provided weekly to help participants improve on life skills and professional development skills.
The primary role for a mentor is to provide support and to offer a positive role model to the program's selected trainees. A mentor is a resource to bounce ideas off, use as a sounding board, a person rooting for them and someone they can call for advice and assistance in job search. During COVID-19, all activities are virtual.
A network of friends, inspired by Gospel values, growing in holiness and building a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need.
St. Vincent de Paul of Contra Costa County (SVdP CC) was founded in 1964. We provide direct aid services at our Family Resource Center in Pittsburg and throughout the county through 28 branches of service. SVdP CC strives to provide concrete aid to those in need.
Our many programs provide food, clothing, shelter, rental assistance, medical services, employment, and workforce development to our neighbors in Contra Costa County. We collaborate with several Bay Area agencies including Loaves & Fishes, Catholic Charities, RotaCare Bay Area, Winter Nights Shelter, One Warm Coat, and the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties.
