Why St. Vincent de Paul
Ozaukee County, WI
St. Vincent de Paul of Ozaukee County is a group of lay Catholic volunteers from all walks of life – neighbors helping neighbors right here in Ozaukee County. Assistance may include emergency rent, utilities, food, clothing, household goods and/or referral services.
On a person-to-person basis, through a Home Visit, members offer help, hope, and encouragement to people in need – an ear to listen, a hand in a time of crisis and a hope to guide people toward programs that can bring lasting change into their lives.
Our thrift store located in Port Washington helps provide this assistance through proceeds from the items we sell.
