St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is a leading provider of community services to people suffering from the effects of hunger, homelessness, and poverty in Baltimore, Maryland.
Each year, over 50,000 people are helped through our comprehensive services that have a singular focus: To help build better futures for those who are struggling in poverty.
Helping people escape poverty requires a broad scope of services that reach people at their level of need. We help individuals and families with basic needs, such as food, clothing, and shelter that sustain and stabilize. We also help people regain their self-sufficiency and achieve better futures through transitional and permanent supportive housing, educational services to children and youth, and occupational skills training and job placement.
"Camp had an indescribable impact on my children experiencing homelessness for the first time. It helped them emotionally to know that being homeless was only temporary, and that there were other kids going through the same thing.”
– Toya with Taj, Tariq, and Kiden
Toya’s oldest child, Taj, was introduced to a new book at camp called Heaven. It’s a story about a girl in Ohio whose family loses their house. “It’s about their struggles,” Taj said. “I liked it because it related to me and what my family is going through.”
Camp St. Vincent begins in just a few weeks!
For the more than 2,300 homeless children in Baltimore, summers are a time of challenges.
Camp St. Vincent is designed to address the impact of homelessness on children’s academic, social, and emotional development.
Each week, Camp St. Vincent provides more than 160 homeless children a safe and secure environment. Children receive academic enrichment, build life and social skills, enjoy swimming and recreation, and experience enriching activities such as music and art.
As you look forward to your own summer plans, please consider a gift to make this summer extraordinary for a homeless child.
$40 can send a child to Camp St. Vincent for a day!
