Local Resources

SVDP Rhode Island comprises a statewide Council, five district councils, and 32 parish-based conferences. Use the tabs below to find local services, including conferences, food pantries, meal sites, holiday aid and clothing donation bins.  Note: Some conferences of SVDP Rhode Island operate clothing closets. Call ahead to find out if the conference closest to you offers clothing. Choice is often limited at these closets, and proper sizes may not be available. For acute clothing needs, contact our administrative office at 401-490-0822 so we can talk about providing a voucher for the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store in Plainville, MA.

Conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul are composed of Vincentian volunteers who serve those in need in their local communities.  At the heart of what we do is the “home visit,” so don’t be surprised if Vincentians ask to meet in your home (they will always arrive as a pair). Most of our conferences offer the range of basic needs assistance from rent and security deposits to assistance with medical and utility bills. Those marked with ☆ only provide food pantry or other on-site services.

Clothing donation bins are a Win-Win-Win-Win for you, for us, for the poor here in Rhode Island, and for the poor in the Third World. Your donations of clean textiles are bundled and sold to non-governmental organizations like World Vision and Catholic Relief Services to clothe the naked around the globe. In return, we receive a significant portion of those sales for use here in Rhode Island. Last year, two-thirds of our income derived from our clothing operation. So, please be generous.
