What We Do

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Omaha is a Catholic, parish-based, direct-aid organization that brings together women and men to grow in their spirituality through service to neighbors in need. Serving Omaha neighborhoods since 1868, we are part of an international organization linked by the common mission of our patron St. Vincent de Paul.

Currently located in 31 parish-based conferences, our 600+ volunteer members make home visits to their neighbors in need to provide person-to-person services, including assisting with housing, utility and transportation needs. In 2019 our conferences contributed hundreds of thousands of dollar to help our neighbors stay in their homes.

Our thrift stores are the preeminent way that the Society serves Omaha neighborhoods. Unlike virtually any other thrift operation in Omaha, we provided over 5,000 people with free goods from our thrift stores in 2019. We also sell items to low-income families who otherwise could not afford them. We also contributed countless volunteer hours in disaster relief, accommodations, shelter, food assistance, furniture, clothing and more during the 2019 Flood.

Our main pantry at 2101 Leavenworth Street, operating continuously since 1956, provides free, nutritious food for more than 25,000 people each year. We are a “client choice" pantry – people shop for groceries just as in a grocery store and choose only the foods they need and will use. We operate SVdP Thrift stores at 24th and P, 807 Tara Plaza in Papillion and our newest store at 90th and Fort next to Baker's.

The Holy Family Churchyard Community Garden at 1715 Izard Street is thriving. Moving our offices to the rectory at Holy Family Church has given us the opportunity to revive the garden and the community that goes with it.
