Society of St. Vincent de Paul-Indianapolis Archdiocesan Council, Inc.


I Need Help

When your needs are of the most basic kind – food, clothing, a bed for your child to sleep in – St. Vincent de Paul is ready to assist. We operate two Food Pantries in Indianapolis (see below). And we offer personalized one-to-one assistance in helping to assess your material needs and identify ways in which we can help.

We understand that for some, poverty is all they have known in a lifetime. Generational poverty provides ongoing challenge to those in need – and yet, there are solutions for that. Through our Changing Lives Forever program, we teach others how to help lift themselves from the confines of poverty.

Whether your need for help is situational or ongoing, St. Vincent de Paul has a variety of ways to help you. All you need to do is ask.


St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) offers two client choice food pantry locations in Indianapolis. Please ensure you bring proof of residency (such as a utility bill). You must also meet the Income Guidelines published by the State of Indiana. SVdP serves the poor regardless of religious affiliations, race, or national origin.

I Want to Take Charge of My Life


If life is spinning out of control, and you want assistance in learning how to take it back, there is a program for you. Our Changing Lives Forever program helps participants lift themselves out of poverty. The materials used educate clients on the rules of work and other skills needed to become economically self-sufficient. Some graduates have found employment, been able to continue their education, and overcome addictions, while others have significantly transformed their own lives.
