Answering Christ's call, we foster hope by providing spiritual, emotional and material assistance on a person-to-person basis to the poor, lonely and forgotten in our community.

St. Vincent de Paul - Cincinnati seeks, in a spirit of justice and charity of its members, to help those who are suffering.
Faithful to the spirit of its founders, St. Vincent de Paul constantly strives to renew and adapt itself to the changing conditions of the world.
Catholic in character, SVDP is open to all who wish to live their faith by loving and serving their neighbor.
No work of charity is foreign to SVDP. Vincentian helping can include any person-to-person assistance that promotes human dignity and integrity. SVDP is concerned not only with relieving need but also with redressing the situations that cause it.
Members of SVDP are united in the same spirit of poverty and sharing. There is no distinction regarding wealth, position, social status, or ethnic origin within the organization. Members form throughout the world with those they help, as one and the same family.

St. Vincent de Paul is primarily a private sector response to need in our community. We do not receive funding from United Way, Catholic Ministries Appeal, or the Archbishop's Fund. Gifts range from $5 a month given by a caring senior citizen to thousands of dollars from a corporation or an individual bequest. Without these many gifts, we simply would not be able to provide emergency assistance and basic necessities to more than 120,000 people in need each year throughout Cincinnati.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, will strive to provide basic necessities to people in need in meaningful ways that respect each person's innate dignity as a human being. Service should support the goals expressed in the Society's strategic plan.

The effectiveness of St. Vincent de Paul's programs will be monitored through regular reports to the Board of Directors, typically as part of quarterly Board reports. Reports should include specific measures to realize the strategic plan goals.

At least annually, the Executive Director will report to the Board the number of individuals and services provided for the year. The Board Services Team will be responsible for evaluating SVDP programs annually for their effectiveness.

Despite giving over $22 million in assistance, food, and vouchers in 2015 to those in need, many of our neighbors are still experiencing poverty.
