St. Vincent de Paul can help with utilities, rent, household goods, transportation & clothing. We believe that nobody should have to forego these necessities.
We are receiving an EXTRAORDINARY number of requests for assistance.
Unfortunately, they are exceeding the resources we have available.
As a result, we are limiting the number of calls that we can process daily. Please allow us 3 days to process your request. If you have not been contacted by one of our volunteers after 3 days please call back and place your request again.
If your request is time-sensitive, please include this information in your message.
When you call, please leave your first and last name, phone number, zip code, and the reason you are calling.
You may find other resources at findhelp.org or by calling 211, or the Idaho Care Line.
Leave a message with name, phone number, zip code, and need. Speak slowly and clearly. A volunteer will call you back within 48 hours. The call may be from a blocked number – Please answer it! If you don’t receive a call back, please call the Helpline again. The caller will arrange a visit by two St. Vincent de Paul Volunteers.
The OLG Help Line will be closed August 7-18
The St. Vincent de Paul Reentry Conference is an interfaith volunteer group who provide assistance to men and women recently released from prison. The mission is to support ex-to promote a successful transition back to society. Many members of this conference have been formerly incarcerated or have had family incarcerated. This way, conference members better understand the unique challenges of reentry and can provide resources to match client’s needs.
If you are recently released from prison and in need of assistance, please call our help line. Make sure to clearly state that you are looking for a reentry home visit. That way we can connect you with the correct home visit conference.
Our Method – The Home Visit
The heart of our ministry is the home visit. We go in pairs
of two out and meet the individual wherever they are living or staying. We listen
to their needs and struggles. From there, we provide various assistance and
bring a wealth of information on other resources.
All this action aims to break the chain of recidivism. In three years, 66% of released inmates are rearrested. This is an alarming statistic that we are committed to change. Together, we can make a real impact in peoples lives and cut down on this rate.
