Helping From Home

St. Vincent de Paul

For nearly 75 years, St. Vincent de Paul has opened its doors to feed, clothe, house, and heal our neighbors in need. It’s the generosity and passionate support of our volunteers that makes this work possible. 

Our volunteers selflessly serve the community in our dining rooms, medical and dental clinics, thrift stores, ministry to the homeless, Dream Center, urban farm, and more.

Unfortunately, the current global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we operate. While SVdP normally cultivates an environment of human connection and social embracing, during this unprecedented time, we must take the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe. That means asking our beloved volunteer family to stay at home for now. Please stay safe as you keep those around you healthy.

But we know many of you still have a heart for those in need and a desire to continue helping in any way possible. So although we may not be able to see you in person, there are still many ways you can help from home!


Here are just some ideas to get you started. Contact Shawn Donnelly at for more information!

Join us in helping the Human Service Campus. HSC is seeking Phoenix City Council approval to add more shelter beds.  Write letters supporting Phoenix Mayor Gallego’s forward thinking approach.  Learn more about how you can help:
