  • About Us
    St. Vincent de Paul of New Orleans is a volunteer-driven nonprofit which has worked to support people challenged by poverty in the Greater New Orleans region since 1865 through the provision of emergency financial assistance, case management, and access to education, food, and basic needs. SVDP New Orleans aims to break the cycle of poverty by decreasing barriers to crucial basic needs for Louisiana’s most vulnerable residents.
  • Our Impact
    Our AmeriCorps VISTA program, Nourishing Louisiana, aims to reduce disparities in access to food and healthcare in impoverished communities across Southeast Louisiana. Nourishing LA VISTA Members build capacity at overburdened food distribution sites to meet an increasing demand through volunteer recruitment, community outreach, and fundraising. VISTA Members also build partnerships with local community health organizations to bring mobile health services and education to the food distribution sites, in a coordinated effort to generate more access to critical services and resources.
