Help Us do more this Holiday Season
Please join hands with SVdP in this season of love and caring. You can help us provide more local affordable housing, jobs, and life-stabilizing help for seniors, veterans, and families. More of your neighbors are in need than ever before.
For 70 years, St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County’s social service programs have provided supportive resources for individuals, children, and families who live in poverty and/or homelessness, serving 35,000 people annually. SVdP operates more than 1,600 units of affordable housing and two-day-access shelters for families and individuals experiencing homelessness, offers low-barrier employment, and administers many programs that foster long-term stability. Waste-based businesses generate revenue for social services and divert millions of pounds of reusable materials from landfills annually.
Prevent homelessness. Keep a family’s lights on. Shelter a family experiencing homelessness. Provide affordable rental housing. Help a veteran. There are many ways to help people in need through St. Vincent de Paul.
Donations from the community help us support people in need and raise funds for our charitable programs. We accept a wide variety of clothing, household items, appliances, electronics and more at our donation centers.
In our work in real estate development, renovation and maintenance, and service provision, St. Vincent de Paul periodically contracts with outside vendors in our community.
We focus on helping people find a path out of poverty and reaching self-sufficiency – being on our team means you make an impact!
Thank you in advance for your interest and willingness to share your time and talents with us. We have many volunteer opportunities for you to choose from.
Cascade Alliance helps nonprofits across the country turn discarded items into a stable revenue stream and source of quality jobs for people with barriers, providing lasting community wide economic and environmental impacts.
