Everyone falls on hard times. Whether it’s due to layoffs, family illness, natural disasters, or other life challenges. During these times of distress, people need a place to turn. Each year in Lane County, over 55,000 people turn to St. Vincent de Paul’s Social Service Office for emergency support during challenging times.
The Social Service Office at St. Vincent de Paul’s Lindholm Service Center is by appointment only until further notice. For additional needs, please visit the Lane County emergency services provider list.
Donations of food and emergency supplies are accepted at the Atkinson Food Room during business hours, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm each Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The Atkinson Food Room is located behind the Social Service Office at 456 Highway 99 N in Eugene.
