St. Vincent de Paul assistance programs Greenville County South Carolina.

Society of Saint Vincent de Paul has multiple conferences and parishes in Greenville County. The volunteer run charity provides one time, short term financial help for paying bills, rent, and living expenses. There are also free food pantries in the county, including Simpsonville, the city of Greenville South Carolina, Taylors, and nearby towns. Families or individuals can be given free groceries, personal toiletries, holiday food baskets and more.

The SVDP has limited resources. In order to get free stuff or financial help, applicants need to provide proof of residency in Greenville County; proof of all income from all sources; have identification; copies of expenses and budget and more. The St. Vincent Society will often require a home visit before providing any funds and they also have limited resources.

Emergency financial help for bills, rent, and more from SVDP in Greenville County

Most of the clients of St. Vincent de Paul Greenville County conferences just want to achieve financial security. Most people want a decent paying job with benefits, to secure a home, access to medical care or quality education for kids, Therefore the St. Vincent parishes may offer short term support for paying utility bills, rent, mortgages or medications while getting people on that path.

The emergency financial assistance programs from agency offer short term support as well as comprehensive services to move the person permanently from a life dependent on emergency assistance, government programs or private charity to living on their own. SVDP assists the poor, single moms or dads, elderly and others. Note there is no rent help offered at any parishes.

Society of St. Vincent de Paul can assist people with referrals to resources in Greenville County. Tenants can be referred to eviction assistance and prevention in SC, among other resources. They can advocate to try to get the client the medical care they need, or seek funds for paying for housing. Or if there are other needs (such as basic household needs, food public transportation, etc.) those too will be addressed.

If, after seeking help, the person is qualified and enrolls in the initiative, they will be assigned to a counselor. They will then work together to establish goals in the areas of education, housing, budgeting, employment, and more. Any funds paid out for bills, whether rent, utilities, etc. will be made directly to the utility company or landlord – no cash is “handed” to the client.
