St. Vincent de Paul of Bend is locally organized and staffed to serve anyone in need with dignity and respect. Through donations by individuals and local businesses, we provide food, clothing, utility, propane, prescription, and transitional housing to help families and individuals who are in need. We serve all people in the Bend area without discrimination regarding race, color, national origin, gender, sexuality, age, religion, political beliefs, or disabilities.

Community Focus

Since 1981, St. Vincent de Paul has helped the disadvantaged of Bend’s Community in a caring and compassionate manner. Last year we provided over 265,000 nutritious meals to 11,049 adults and 6,961 children. In addition, St. Vincent’s offers low income housing and has assisted several hundred families so that they could keep their lights shining, water flowing and gas warming.

Those who cannot afford much needed prescription medication can find help here at St. Vincent’s. During the cold months, we also provide folks with warm coats and blankets.

Helping Our Neighbors

St. Vincent de Paul is a private non-profit 501(c)3 Social Service agency supported by individual donations and grants. All donations stay in our local community to serve others regardless of religion, race, place of origin, or gender. 90% of all donations go directly to someone in crisis in the Bend Community.
