St. Vincent de Paul is a social service organization that has been providing food, shelter and hope to those in need in the Louisville, KY, area since 1853. Through seven housing programs, a large community kitchen that serves 120,000 free meals each year, and a network of 47 neighborhood conferences, St. Vincent de Paul offers help to men, women, and children who are trying to break the cycle of homelessness.



St. Vincent de Paul Louisville, a lay Catholic organization, serves individuals and families in need including those who are homeless, living in poverty, suffering from addiction, enduring mental illness or experiencing acute economic crisis.  Through the availability of a full continuum of care including food, shelter, affordable housing, counseling, skill development, rent and utility assistance, St. Vincent de Paul reaches out to those most at risk...regardless of background or faith...with the goal of lifting each person to a life of personal and economic independence.

Our Open Hand Kitchen will serve more than 120,000 free meals to people in need this year.300 people, including 58 children, are provided a safe home on the St. Vincent de Paul campus while they work toward independence and a brighter future.

The Open Hand Kitchen serves more than 10,000 meals a month—over 120,000 annually—to the hungry of Louisville. Our programs help the people we serve become independent. Currently, 87% of our emergency shelter clients have secured employment or are working on their education; and 63% have now established a savings account.

More than $0.82 of every dollar donated to St. Vincent de Paul goes directly toward providing food and shelter to those in need in Louisville and Southern Indiana.
