WELCOME

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.

A Child’s Self-Esteem – Priceless

Caden’s self-esteem is reflected in his smile. Our number one mission with the Uniforms for Kids effort is to preserve the dignity and self-esteem of needy children like Caden. Needy children have so little and certainly don’t need another obstacle to overcome. We don’t want any child to be singled out or bullied because they lack the proper attire. No child should dread the first day of school because they don’t have the required uniform. The children in the photos on this envelope – Caden, Ileana, Mariah, and Collin – are important to us. Education is their only way out of poverty, and we need your help! We have set a goal of helping 12,880 children in our community, but we can’t do it without you! How many needy children can you assist?
