Welcome to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Baton Rouge. St. Vincent de Paul has been actively striving to
understand and fulfill the needs of the poor within Baton Rouge and the surrounding community since 1865.
We are here to aid the most vulnerable members of our community. Through our various programs, we reach out to those in
need. We provide hot meals to those who would otherwise go hungry, warm beds to those who would have no place to sleep,
medications to those who could not afford them on their own, and the mandatory uniforms that children need to attend school.
By fulfilling these basic needs we do more than address the needs of the moment; we believe that we are giving a hand up,
and not a hand out. At every opportunity, we move to better the lives of those we help and move them towards self-sufficiency
and a better quality of life.
Help us to expand our Bishop Ott Sweet Dreams Shelter for mothers with children
We have a vision of expanding our shelter capacity for homeless mothers and children.
It is critically needed, and the Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation has issued a challenge grant to help us make this expansion a reality.
Every day, we receive calls from women and mothers who are seeking a place of refuge for themselves and their families.
Too often, we are unable to help because we do not have space. Click here to find out more about our project.
