Emergency   Assistance Program & Wish List

 

Every family faces some type of crisis on occasion, but in the remote hollows of Eastern Kentucky the emergencies are intensified by isolation, poor roads and limited finances.

St. Vincent Mission gives Christian service to people by providing food, clothing, household items or assistance in reaching the proper agency where they can find help.  Help with an unexpected car repair, loss of home to fire, rent, medical needs or increase utility cost may also be given.

Eligible applications who are physically able give community service hours to St. Vincent Mission in exchange for financial assistance.

In 2015, St. Vincent Mission's Emergency Assistance Program provided 95 families with a total of $21,822 in utility bill payments, rent or mortgage payments, travel cost, car repairs, etc. 62 of the recipient families provided community service for the funds they receive - a total of 372 hours in community service.
