Mission

The St. Vincent de Paul Society of Naples is a Catholic lay organization whose members join together to grow spiritually by providing person-to-person service to the needy and suffering.  We embrace all works of charity and justice, and make no distinction in those served because in them we see the face of Christ.   No act of charity is foreign to the Society. SVdP Naples delivers Meals on Wheels to low-income homebound seniors, provides financial, food and furniture assistance to working families in need, and operates thrift stores in Naples & Bonita Springs. All of this is made possible without government funding by dedicated volunteers, the Grace of God, and generous donors like you.

Financial, Food & Furniture Assistance to Low-Income Working & Non-working Families

We now have eight SVDP Conferences in Naples who are responsible for the emergency assistance programs that provide help to the poor and disadvantaged in Collier County. We also  partner with other agencies in the community in order to fulfill this ministry. Typically, we help with rent, mortgages and utilities one time per year.  Our conference members and volunteers make "home visits" to assess the needs of those we serve.   Home visits are the backbone of SVDP ministries.  Two conference members are required to make a "home visit" where need is evaluated and we are able to  listen and dialog in the home setting, showing respect to those we serve.    Our additional programs are provided directly from our Mercantile office.  These include food, clothing, furniture and household goods.   These items are essential to help families and individuals when starting school, looking for a job,  recovering from a disaster or just trying to make it through the month while working low income jobs.

The St. Vincent De Paul Meals-On-Wheels program serves the elderly, home bound, and those who cannot afford nutritional meals by providing one hot meal per day, Monday through Friday, and two frozen meals for the weekend - delivered to their door by our dedicated MOW volunteers. We provide Meals-on-Wheels for most of Collier County without any government funding. Each year our 250 volunteer drivers deliver over 90,000 meals which we purchase at a cost of approximately $300,000.

We operate a choice food pantry where our neighbors in need select the foods they need and want rather than receive a “bag of food” that we selected. The vast majority of this food is donated by the members of our 8 Collier County parishes, supplemented by donations of day-old bakery items from Publix and other stores throughout the county. Last year the value of the food we distributed was $475,000. - The Saint Vincent De Paul Choice Food Pantry Is Located at the Family Assistance Center on Mercantile Avenue in Naples.- The pantry is stocked with non-perishable food items, hygiene items, bread,  and when available dairy and produce. - The pantry is available for those in need Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 1pm to those in need.- Individuals who are served by our Choice Food Pantry are seen by a conference member prior to receiving food in order to assess if any other needs in the family should be addressed.- Individuals and families in need may receive food once per month; with the occasional exception of additional need.

Charting impact

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

Our two Goals are:Continue to assist the poor and disadvantaged in Collier County in getting from today to tomorrow when life's issues arise through our ministries.  We want to continue this valuable support in our community. We have been working with a few families on "systemic change." We have been able to change the expectations of families that are motivated and able to move to self sufficiency. We recognize that "systemic change" offers real potential to people and families.  We need to continue to grow our abilities to work with the poor in this area.

- A current technology database that contains more than 10 years of history of those we serve. We can see the progress or lack of progress that people and families are making. - The St Vincent de Paul Home Visit conducted by a team of two Vincentians allows us to be more effective in providing appropriate assistance. - Expand "systemic change" program for families to help them move away from living in poverty after we get past this financial crisis - Open a new Thrift Store- Improve our Fund Raising capabilities - Develop business partnerships, events and other revenue generating enterprises to continue to be able   to expand our programs and develop new ones that will continue to help those in need

- Thrift Stores provide clothing, household goods and furniture to those we serve - Diverse, committed volunteer’s organization that generously supports each of our ministries. - SVDP Home Visits offer a special opportunity to assist those in need - Diverse Board Members from across Collier County with shared values and diverse experience - Contributions including Thrift Store items from a diverse cross section of our community -

We monitor our progress by recognizing that we have made the lives of those we serve a little better because we:   Delivered a "hot meal" and some conversation with the homebound   We were able to feed a growing subset of our community   We could provide clothing furniture and household items to those in need   Families are able to avoid becoming homeless   Families can use their utilities   There are turkeys at Thanksgiving and gifs at Christmas   And from time to time we can affect real change in a family!
