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
Melody’s self-esteem is reflected in her beautiful smile, but we need your help to save her, and thousands of other children, from the humiliation of going to school without the proper attire. We want them to look forward to their first day of school. The children in the photos on this page – Tommy, Melody, Joseph, and Micah – are important to us. We don’t want them, or any needy child, to worry about squeezing into last year’s uniform or, even worse, having no uniform at all. Education is their only way out of poverty, and with your help, they can start the school year with confidence and pride in their appearance. We have set a goal of helping 13,500 children in our community, but we can’t do it without you! How many needy children can you help?
