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.
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.
