Services we provide

   UTILITY BILL ASSISTANCE

Every week we pay electric and water companies in Manatee County to keep the service going and sometimes to restore the service. We are able to assist our neighbors by paying utilities bills that are past due on Final Notice or have been shut off.

Saint Vincent de Paul helped over 2700 families last year alone. We believe no one in Manatee County should be without electricity or water. All of this is done with volunteers who put in over 4,000 hours of work each year.

   GAS AND TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE

Gas vouchers are given to the clients so they may transport their children to school, themselves to work and/or job interviews, and medical appointments.

   FOOD ASSISTANCE

Saint Vincent de Paul provides emergency food bags for those in need. We provide non-perishable food items, toiletries and paper goods which have been donated. We also partner with the Food Bank of Manatee to supplement our non-perishable food items for qualified families. Working through the food bank's Emergency Food Assistance Program we can obtain fresh and frozen item for those we serve.

   EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE

The Sophie's Scholarship has been established to assist clients in furthering their education in order to secure a better paying job to become self sufficient and support their families. This is a newly established program just started this year, it is a work in progress.

SPIRITUAL PARTNERSHIP

As brothers and sisters in Christ we welcome praying and sharing our faith with our neighbors.
