Increasing Neighbor to Neighbor Support

Create a self-sustaining Conference Assistance Fund to help more neighbors in need throughout Hamilton County.

With the support of this fund, St. Vincent de Paul Conferences will be able to offer emergency assistance to vastly more struggling families in their neighborhoods. Directed by the board, investment income from the Conference Assistance Fund will double the amount of financial support currently available to the Conferences on an ongoing basis. The principle will remain secure, ensuring that the work of the Conferences is supported for many years to come.


  • More Greater Cincinnati families will stay safe in their homes and avoid eviction.
  • SVDP Conferences will have access to the resources they need to respond to both immediate and future requests.
  • The Cincinnati community’s capacity to respond to the needs of families on the brink of homelessness will improve, and homeless shelters will face less of a burden.
