Do You Need Some Assistance?

We all need a little help sometimes. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul exists to help to people in need. Here in the Madison area, St. Vincent de Paul offers a wide range of basic-needs assistance to people struggling with poverty, unemployment and underemployment. We try to do that in ways that honor the dignity every human being deserves. For eligible Dane County people in need, the kinds of assistance we offer include:

Please click on the links in the left-hand column for information about each kind of assistance we offer. If you need more information or have questions, please call us between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays at (608) 257-0919.  If you need to leave a message, we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Some of our services are provided through the work of our member volunteers in Madison’s neighborhoods and in several communities across Dane County. Other types of assistance, including food from our pantry and medications from our pharmacy, are provided at our Service Center, 2033 Fish Hatchery Road (one-half mile north of Beltline) in Madison. For more detailed information about our Service Center’s hours, please click here.

Furniture, clothing, housewares and linens are provided at our Dane County thrift stores, but please click on the links at upper left for information and then contact us about getting a voucher before visiting a store for this purpose. All of the assistance our staff, members and volunteers provide through the local programs and facilities we operate is offered without regard to the religion, race, ethnicity, documented status or other characteristics unrelated to the need of the Dane County people we are privileged to help. Please contact us if you need a type of help we provide.

“I’m so thankful for the service provided here. It helps me provide a healthy variety of foods while I maintain my house bills. It helps so much! Thank you.”
