Founded in 1865, St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is an independent non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure those impacted by poverty have the skills and resources to achieve their full potential.
St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is a pioneer in the development of social programs and the advocacy of social justice through a wide range of services from meeting basic human needs to empowering people to improve their quality of life, reach their full potential, and care for their families.
We seek to make a measurable, targeted impact by building programs consistent with community needs and service trends under our five service areas: Homelessness and Supportive Housing, Child and Family Services, Workforce Development, Access to Healthy Food, and Emergency Assistance.
"Severe hunger really hurts. Being hungry all the time is lonely and degrading. It's something no one should have to endure." -Kevin
Kevin was married and working full-time when an injury made him unable to work and he lost his job, became homeless and lived on the streets for nearly five years.
Of all the atrocities that Kevin experienced while homeless, the experience of being hungry stands out to him the most.
Kevin found his way to Beans & Bread for a hot meal and conversations with a case worker who referred him to Frederick Ozanam House, our transitional housing program for men in recovery. Today, Kevin works a full time job, lives in his own apartment, and pays his own bills. Most importantly, he says that he has serenity, ambition, and self-respect.
