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.

Donate to Local Non-profits

This year, inRegister Magazine will celebrate its 25th anniversary. inRegister, published by Louisiana Business, Inc. has covered many St. Vincent de Paul events through the years, and their coverage of our efforts to serve the poor and homeless has helped us greatly. Wanda Horn and Chris Russo Blackwood, founders of inRegister, were very supportive of our mission of service. When Wanda passed away in 1997, Chris and inRegister made sure that Wanda’s memory stayed alive at St. Vincent de Paul by making a contribution to our Bishop Ott Women & Children’s Shelter. Wanda had a great concern for the homeless and hungry. St. Vincent de Paul named our shelter lunch program in her honor.

In celebration of their 25th anniversary, inRegister will generously donate a total of $25,000 to several local non-profits. We would love to be one of the organizations to receive a $5,000 gift, and we need your help to win. We are encouraging all our volunteers and supporters to get involved and vote online at give.inregister.com. Please ask your family and friends in the nine parishes in the Capital Region to vote for us also. Be sure to list the charitable organization as St. Vincent de Paul Baton Rouge. You can vote by going to inregister.com. It’s easy to do; just click on the top banner to vote. Voting is limited to one vote per person.

Join us in congratulating inRegister Magazine for 25 great years!
