Since being established in Des Moines in 1924, the main focus of St. Vincent de Paul’s (SVdP) work is to assist those living in poverty in becoming self-sufficient by helping to remove roadblocks as we walk with them on their journey out of poverty. The Des Moines Council operates two thrift stores, two social services departments, an education center, and a child watch center. SVdP employs around 40+ paid staff and many volunteers.
The approach of St. Vincent de Paul is multifaceted, and intentionally diversified. Our goal is to treat the symptoms that have caused our clients to experience poverty, not just patch the problem. As such, our social services and education center work hand-in-hand to provide access to resources for those in need. These resources may include, but are not limited to:
Workforce Development (Back2Work)
Prisoner re-entry (Immersion)
Social Services (two locations)
Adult Basic Education
