SVdP CARES is making homelessness rare, brief, and one-time through well-managed, highly effective, quality programs that address their most basic human needs. SVdP CARES is the fifth largest SVdP in the nation and is comprised of 99 employees and numerous volunteers to run its many programs.  The agency serves 16 counties across Florida regardless of race, color, religion, sex, ancestry, age, national origin, citizenship, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran or military status, sexual orientation and gender identity, pregnancy, or any other applicable legally protected category.


St. Vincent de Paul CARES (SVdP CARES), in concert with the 185 year legacy of the charity's founder, Frederic Ozanam, has served its target population - the hungry, homeless and impoverished people of St. Petersburg - since 1931, when a single SVdP Conference at St. Paul's Catholic Church opened a soup kitchen. Over time, and reflecting the growth of the City and its environs, that lone provider of services has grown to 12 Conferences comprising the South Pinellas District Council, with SVdP CARES Incorporating on May 20, 1985, and has been assisting those in dire circumstances through well-managed, highly effective, multiple programs that address their basic human needs for food, clothing and shelter. The agency at 384 15th St. N. was established in its present location in 2000. The agency supports these services through a variety of revenue sources including local, state and federal governmental funds, contributions and program fees.
