St. Vincent de Paul has modified some services to maintain the health and safety of guests, staff and volunteers during the coronavirus outbreak. Please refer to updated service details below. (Updated 8/6/20)
Q1. How do I get help with food boxes, furniture or clothing?
We provide food boxes and thrift store gift cards through our community food pantries, which are based out of Catholic churches. Each one responds to needs within its neighborhood. Use this map to find the food pantry that serves your neighborhood. Since all of the pantries are run by volunteers, each location has unique operating hours. Simply type in your address in the search bar and the Google Map will show you the pantry service boundaries, hours and phone number. If we do not have a food pantry in your neighborhood, please call 602.850.6777 for assistance. Due to federal and state guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, current volunteer resources are limited.
For additional resources, visit the Arizona Food Bank Network website for a list of food banks in your area. Many school districts are opening facilities for breakfast and lunch. Please visit your specific school district's websites for more information.
Q2. How do I get help with rent and utility bills?
Due to the pandemic and a high volume of requests for rent and utility bill assistance, we are currently processing a backlog of applications. We are unable to accept new applications at this time.

Q3. How do I get a meal at a dining room?
Here is a list of our dining room locations and hours. While we will be maintaining regular hours, meals will be packaged for guests to take with them. Dream Center educational activities will be on hold until further notice.
Q4. How do I get a dental appointment?
Due to the pandemic and backlog of patients of record, the dental lottery at the clinic will be suspended until further notice. However, we will continue to treat emergency patients on an as needed basis. Starting May 18, the clinic will open to treat patients of record, but at a reduced capacity. The reduced capacity allows us to comply with all the necessary protocols concerning infection control to ensure patient, faculty and staff safety. We ask that patients wear a mask to their scheduled appointments and observe social distancing in the clinic. All patients will be screened prior to entry into the clinic for possible COVID-19 symptoms. Call our dental clinic at 602.261.6842 for more information.
