President, North Vernon SVdP Conference
Changing Lives Forever is our effort to interrupt the cycle of poverty that presently entraps more than 20% of the population of Marion County. Its purpose is to help those mired in poverty to move themselves toward a life that is stronger financially, emotionally, and spiritually as an individual and as a family. The work of the Society here in Indianapolis is a noble cause to help the needy with food, appliances, furniture, clothing, and basic household essentials at no cost, but it’s even better to stem the circumstances that force people into this situation to begin with. So often in these cases, volunteers get even more than they give. Won’t you join us?
Domoni R.
Program Coordinator, Changing Lives Forever
Being a true steward of our resources means that we must share what we have received. We give because we want to support the mission of St. Vincent de Paul in our community and we see great value in the services provided to those in need.

Because God has blessed our family so much, we feel obligated to help others who are less fortunate. In this, God continues to bless us all.

Volunteering at the food pantry has given me a reason to get up every morning, and a new sense of purpose. The volunteers have become like family to me. There is great need in our community for volunteer help. If anyone has it in their heart to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate, St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry can use your help. You’ll never do anything more gratifying!

As a part of a classroom exploration of the themes of inequality and social justice, Professor Goldfarb’s class spent an afternoon donating their time to the SVdP Food Pantry. “The students were encouraged to challenge their assumptions about the needy, interact with them directly, and discover their humanity, dignity, and wisdom. In return, the students learned important lessons in gratitude."
Nancy G.
IUPUI Professor
Our mission revolves around servant leadership and leadership development of students which is accomplished through community service and learning opportunities. St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry in Indianapolis was a wonderful place for our students to volunteer because everyone was so hospitable and welcoming to our help. The trip was very successful and our students are now very well prepared to serve others in need.

For many years, I have volunteered with home visits for area shut-ins. Our clients are so grateful for the little time that I spend with them—often they just need someone to talk to. In turn, I leave with a good feeling, for which I am equally grateful.
