Our Lord Christ The King Church Conference
– established in 2003

https://www.svdpcincinnati.org//


What we do … Our ministry is made up of two parts:

1) Home visits to provide basic emergency assistance of (food, rent, utilities, prescription drugs, furniture and clothing) and prayer with and for nearby individuals and families.

2) Distribute Holy Communion to individuals at nearby assisted living facilities.

Organizational Goals

To provide a safety net for the poor and vulnerable in our community, helping prevent our neighbors in need from falling into the downward spiral of poverty and homelessness. To provide aid extending into our conference’s assigned neighborhoods in Cincinnati. To strengthen our Vincentian fellowship and build our own faith together.

Our volunteer team of Vincentians, now approaching 40 strong, can use your time, talent and or treasure to help our neighbors in need!

In the Spotlight

The St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) Conference at Christ the King Parish is a group of parishioners, who are committed to helping our neighbors in need.  Once a month, we will share a story about the assistance that is given to our neighbors in need. (The names have been changed to protect real identities.) 

A Homeless Threat Averted

Last week our St. Vincent de Paul Conference received a call for help from Jane, a woman whose family was on the verge of being evicted from their home. This family included Jane, who was a stay-at-home mom and who had little recent job experience; her husband, who had not worked for 2 months; and their 4 children (ages 12, 11, 4 and 2). Jane and her husband were in the process of separation, after 15 years of marriage. In addition, they received a shutoff notice from Duke Energy. Jane’s world was literally falling apart!

After our initial meeting with 2 Vincentians and Jane, we determined that our goal would be to keep Jane in her current residence, which was located on a quiet street with a great lot. If forced to move, it would be very difficult for Jane to find anything comparable. Also, having an eviction on her credit report would make it even more challenging to secure future housing. We needed to move quickly to stabilize her housing threat.  There were only a few days left to get Jane out from under her predicament. 

We contacted Jane’s landlord to let her know we would be working with her tenant to help relieve the current delinquency. The good news was that Jane, our neighbor in need, had a recent job interview and there was a positive job prospect with income that would support their financial needs. The landlord agreed to remove the eviction, and accepted our proposed solution. Next, we contacted Duke Energy and they set up Jane on a plan to remove the shutoff.

Thanks to great teamwork and speedy response, we assisted Jane in averting a homeless threat. We feel comfortable that Jane will proceed with starting and succeeding in her new job. We won’t be far away while she gets on her feet. She passes along her gratitude to our PARISHIONERS for your help.
