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 2018 our conferences contributed over $800,000 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 4,830 people with free goods from our thrift stores in 2018. We also sell items to low-income families who otherwise could not afford them.
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.
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 community garden and the community that goes with it.
