We are looking for compassionate individuals who are interested in talking with our neighbors in need and connecting them with the resources we provide!

Our Welcome Room Volunteers are the comforting face of St. Vincent de Paul. They first help our neighbors to feel comfortable and then talk with them about their situation and what they are in need of. They then help them with the services we provide: clothing & household vouchers, bus tokens, Birth Certificates, IDs, diapers, feminine hygiene and food, as well as connect them with other community resources!

Many of the people we serve not only come to us for services, but also for someone who will be the caring, listening ear they don't find in other agencies. We want to provide them with services while also fostering hope in seemingly hopeless situations.

About Society of St. Vincent de Paul

Location:

1146 Bank Street, Cincinnati, OH 45214, US

Mission Statement

A network of neighbors, inspired by Gospel values, growing in holiness and building a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need.

Description

Although the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a worldwide organization with nearly 600,000 members in 133 countries, there is one simple common denominator that links all of the members and sums up their work...that is, neighbors helping neighbors.

The Cincinnati District Council of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has been helping Cincinnati and Hamilton County residents in need for almost 150 years. More than 800 members, volunteers, and staff in 60 neighborhoods visit people in need in their homes and help with basic necessities like food, clothing, rent, utilities & furniture. St. Vincent de Paul's safety net extends into virtually every neighborhood in Cincinnati. When the poor and vulnerable of our community have no other place to turn, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is there for them, regardless of race or creed.
