SVDP Hunger Centers

Nourishing 14,000 hungry Northeast Ohio men, women, children and seniors every month

SVDP Cleveland believes that no one should ever have to go hungry.

That’s why it operates one of the larger networks of hunger centers here in Northeast Ohio. Located throughout several local neighborhood communities, SVDP hunger centers are a key player in fighting the war on hunger by providing nourishment for senior citizens, men, women and children who rely on these centers when there is no place else to turn.

The hunger centers offer folks staples, fresh produce, personal items and clothing to those in need, thanks to financial and in-kind donations from individuals, companies and organizations in the community. And they’re always given with a loving heart and warm smile by our many dedicated volunteers, some of whom help as part of their employer’s volunteer program.

Help us fight hunger in Northeast Ohio with your tax-deductible safe and secure online donation today. Or if you prefer, please mail your check to SVDP Cleveland Hunger Centers, 1404 East 9th Street-3rd Floor, Cleveland, OH 44114

Every $1 of your loving donation feeds four people!

Homeless Fund

Your Donation Today Will Help Move Someone Out of Homelessness Tomorrow

Imagine living each day without knowing whether you’re going to be able to eat, when you’ll be able to take a shower, or where you’re going to sleep at night. Sadly, this is the reality for thousands of local homeless people.

In fact, 23,000 individuals in Cuyahoga County alone experienced homelessness in 2017, according to the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless. Moreover, since 2015, there has been a 24 percent increase in homeless families here in our community.

Without basic necessities that so many of us take for granted, it is nearly impossible for men, women and children living under these conditions to break the cycle of homelessness.

This is where you can help.

When you make a financial contribution to the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Homeless Fund, you are helping to move another individual or family out of homelessness. Your kind donation will be used towards a security deposit or first month’s rent for people attempting to escape homelessness, which include:

• a homeless person who finally decided to move into an apartment

• a family whose house caught on fire and is unexpectedly homeless after Red Cross funds have been depleted

• a single mother fleeing a domestic violence situation

• a family that is temporarily staying in a hotel or in their car because a parent lost his/her job and could not afford rent and utilities

No donation amount is too small to help house another person in need.

Vehicle Donations Pave the Road for Possibilities

Say good-bye to expensive repairs & turn your old wheels into wellness and well-being!

Your used car can become food, medicine and rent for the needy in our community. And when you donate your late model car, truck, boat, motorcycle, farm equipment or recreational vehicle to SVDP Cleveland, not only will you receive a tax deduction to the fullest extent of the law, you’ll be free from the troubles of insuring, licensing, repairing and selling your vehicle. We’ll even provide free towing within 24 hours.

Donating is fast and easy! Simply call toll-free at 800-322-8284 or donate online.
