We conduct an in home interview with those we serve to be able to know them better and to be able to provide and advise them of the best short term and long term solutions to their difficulties.
We are the only authorized United Way agency in Sumner County. We help people of all races, gender and religion who are truly in need.
St. Vincent was born of poor parents in the village of Pouy in Gascony, France, about 1580. He enjoyed his first schooling under the Franciscan Fathers at Acqs. Such had been his progress in four years that a gentleman chose him as subpreceptor to his children, and he was thus enabled to continue his studies without being a burden to his parents.
Each year we help thousands of Sumner County residents. Most of the people who come to us are facing a temporary emergency resulting from a medical emergency, lost job, illness or other crisis. We investigate every claim and visit those we serve to make sure Saint Vincent de Paul funds are used prudently.
We provide emergency assistance including, food, clothing, prescription medication, furniture and household items, utilities and rent to people in need.
We’ll be glad to answer your questions!
