SANTA ROSA FREE DINING ROOM

Caring volunteers in our free Dining Room prepare and serve a hot, nutritious lunch from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm every day, 365 days a year. During the fiscal year ended 9/30/10 we served over 89,000 meals to the hungry and homeless men, women and children of Sonoma County.

ROHNERT PARK THRIFT STORE

We operate a warehouse and Thrift Store in Rohnert Park where people in need and the general public can shop for low-cost clothing, furniture, and household items. All profits support our free Dining Room .

The Thrift Store is open Monday – Saturday, 8:30 am to 6 pm. A vast array of merchandise is available for sale at bargain prices. Visit our website at: www.svdp-sonoma.org for more information about the huge selection of items available and how you can take advantage of our daily specials and sales!

Every item donated through our Rohnert Park warehouse and sold in our retail Thrift Store directly benefits the needy of Sonoma County. All profits from the store support our Dining Room and other services to the needy, while providing bargain prices to shoppers on clothing, furniture, and house wares.

If you can buy it at a Department Store, chances are you can find a gently used version at our Thrift Store. We sell:
• Furniture (bedroom, living room, family room, patio)

• Artwork & prints

IF YOU NEED INDIVIDUAL ASSISTANCE

St. Vincent de Paul volunteers make home visits—a cornerstone of the Society since it was founded. Our Individual Assistance Program will provide you with a home visit from a volunteer who will help to assess your needs and connect you with the services you require, from food and household goods to community resources.

SVdP Sonoma also operates numerous community based food programs. For a food program in your community contact the District Council of Sonoma County office at (707)584-1579 for a referral.

JOB TRAINING PROGRAM WITH WEST COUNTY COMMUNITY SERVICES

Our Job Training Program, in association with West County Community Services and the Sonoma County Department of Rehabilitation, provides an opportunity for hard to place and disabled adults to develop critical job skills while providing much needed staffing to the St. Vincent de Paul warehouse, sorting and testing facility.

Following in the tradition of Frederic Ozanam, founder of the international Society of St. Vincent de Paul, we provide assistance to all people in need, regardless of creed, race, status or origin.

Mission:
There comes a time in many people's lives when they will face poverty and extreme financial challenge. If that person is fortunate, this situation will be temporary, but for countless neighbors among us, poverty is inter-generational and lasts until some type of significant intervention occurs.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides a critical safety net of caring services to bridge the gap for those that are temporarily suffering financial hardship and strives to pave a road of independence for families who have been afflicted for generations.
Results:
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers compassion in action. We focus on people, working one-on-one with those in need. We offer an open door, free of judgment. We share time with individuals to discover their needs and help them stand strong. We offer a range of services to help people start to move forward, to build a better life.

SVdP’s services and volunteer network have grown to directly impact the lives of over 150,000 low-income and homeless people in Sonoma County each year. Additionally, daily surplus food is distributed indirectly to hundreds of limited-income Sonoma county residents by local Conferences.
