Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County (SVdP) is Lane County’s largest nonprofit human service organization. We serve those most vulnerable in our community including unhoused and/or low-income individuals and families, at-risk youth, formerly incarcerated individuals, seniors, veterans, and community members with a range of mental and physical health barriers.

SVdP’s social services programs have provided supportive resources for individuals, children, and families who are experiencing homelessness or housing instability. We manage more than 1,600 units of affordable housing, operate two day access shelters for homeless families and individuals, offer low-barrier employment, and administer many programs that promote long-term stability and self- sufficiency. We aim to alleviate poverty and end the cycle of homelessness in our community.

SVdP's foundation is using entrepreneurial approaches to address community needs and the needs of the low-income community we serve. Through our emergency assistance, homeless programs, affordable housing, and low-barrier employment, we give people the opportunity to stabilize, grow, and succeed. We achieve this through three core areas: retail and manufacturing, social services, and affordable housing.

Growth in Core Areas
*Organizational Capacity
*Social Services
*Retail, Recycling and Manufacturing
*Affordable Housing

Growing and adapting daily!

Significant advancement in the last two years despite the pandemic. In the process of re-establishing the 'plan' for the next few years adapting to the changes in the employment world and service needs of our community.
