Inspired by Gospel values, the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store is a Catholic lay organization which strives to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those in need. The St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store is dedicated to working with other successful non-profit organizations to provide necessary programs and services for clients, giving them the tools to be successful and empowering them to be self-sufficient.
Within the first month of opening, the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store developed a diverse collection of programs and services, including English as a Second Language (ESL), Financial Empowerment Courses, Parenting Courses, Stor-E-Time (a pre-school reading program) and free immunizations. Over 850 people have benefited from our outreach programs.
Over the past year, the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store has served over 20,000 customers and referred 87 families needing financial and/or medical assistance. The St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store also has provided over $15,000 dollars worth of clothing, furniture and other household items to those in need, through our Voucher Program.
