Founded in 1865, St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is an independent non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure those impacted by poverty have the skills and resources to achieve their full potential.
St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is a pioneer in the development of social programs and the advocacy of social justice through a wide range of services from meeting basic human needs to empowering people to improve their quality of life, reach their full potential, and care for their families.
We seek to make a measurable, targeted impact by building programs consistent with community needs and service trends under our five service areas: Homelessness and Supportive Housing, Child and Family Services, Workforce Development, Access to Healthy Food, and Emergency Assistance.

2013 Annual Report
“I often don’t have more than a small snack to eat at night. I look forward to my meals and seeing the folks at Beans & Bread. Without them, I wouldn’t have much.” --Sam
More than 40 years ago, Sam was gravely injured in a car accident. After months of recovery and rehabilitation, Sam began working in a distribution center for a newspaper. Despite Sam’s dedication, his job eventually became automated and he was laid off. Without work and in poor health, Sam was unable to keep up with his bills and ended up living on the streets.

More than 25% of Baltimore residents live below the poverty line. For people like Sam, their income is simply not enough to purchase groceries for a week. Many vulnerable adults – those who are homeless, disabled, or older and cannot work – turn to Beans & Bread for a meal each month, each week and often each day.
