To prevent families from having to experience homelessness, plus the emotional trauma and “life recovery” challenges that go with it, we provide one-time assistance for rent, mortgage and utility bills.

The Society of Roofs Over Hard-Working Families

The average household income for those served by SVdP is $12,000.

These families usually cannot cover even their basic needs. Join SVdP in supporting them

Bestowing both dignity and security, this compassionate corner of St. Vincent de Paul prevents homelessness by providing direct assistance to our needy neighbors — to avoid utility shut-off first, and especially eviction, which can cripple a family for a long time. When possible, we co-fund with other agencies and target our one-time family assistance to those who have the potential to regain self-sufficiency in a relatively short amount of time. 

Rent and utility bill assistance are assessed by volunteers who work out of our community food pantries, which are based out of Catholic churches. With over 80 locations in Arizona, we work with 2-1-1 Arizona connect families to our volunteers. If you need assistance, simply dial 2-1-1 from your phone and you'll be connected. The operator there will help you find a St. Vincent de Paul pantry closest to you.
