Vincent's Community Outreach
Vincent’s Community Outreach (VCO) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving and assisting low-income and homeless individuals in the inner city of St. Louis, MO.
Due to the ever growing demand in the city of St. Louis, Vincent’s Community Outreach (VCO) was launched in 2012 to support individuals of all faiths and backgrounds to the mission of providing community outreach services and programs.
The VCO provides a formal structure to support the generosity and commitment to the mission of providing programs tailored to assist individuals from low-income and homeless backgrounds living in the 63104 zip code.
Vincent’s Community Outreach operates as a 501 c3 non-profit organization. The VCO relies on the generous donations, gifts in kind, grants, staff and volunteers to deliver meals, food pantry, lunch window and after school tutoring services in St. Louis, MO. Although a relative young non-profit organization, its mission and values are deeply rooted and derived from “social ministries funding” and operations dating back 175 years. Through the “social ministries funding” and various volunteer programs, the people of St Vincent DePaul Church provided the needed support and service to both individuals and neighborhoods struggling with poverty and homelessness.
Our Dedication to Service
Today, Vincent’s Community Outreach is continuing our commitment to the foundation of services and programs with its full support of the weekly Food Pantry (Tuesday and Thursday), the daily Lunch window (Monday - Saturday), by serving hot dinners from the 22nd - the 1st of each month, Clothing for those those that are without the means or need appropriate clothing for job interviews, our Laundry program which provides the dignity of clean clothing to those needing assistance, and offering an After School Tutoring program on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons to assist children K-5 with reading and math tutoring.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"I moved to St. Louis to get a job, but when the job fell through I found myself on the streets. I heard about
Vincent's Community Outreach and when I got there, they gave me a change of clothes, a lunch and a little bit of hope that tomorrow might be a better day."
— Martin, Outreach recipient
