The Holy Name St. Vincent de Paul Conference


The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) is an international voluntary organization in the Catholic Church, founded in 1833, for the sanctification of its members by personal service to the poor.

Holy Name Church has an established SVdP conference.  In its efforts to offer material help to the poor or needy, the Holy Name SVdP conference supports a food pantry and provides financial assistance, when funds are available, for rent and utility assistance.

Mission of St. Vincent de Paul Society

The Holy Name SVdP conference offers a food pantry to the public and those in need.  The pantry is open every Wednesday from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.  We receive a portion of our food from the USDA through The Emergency Food Assistance Program, known as TEFAP.  No identification or additional information is required to receive TEFAP foods, as long as you are a Nebraska resident and under the monthly gross income guidelines.

To receive financial assistance for rent and/or utilities (MUD or OPPD), you will need to come to the pantry when it is open (Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00 p.m.) and speak one-on-one with a Holy Name SVdP representative.  When you come, please bring the following information:  identification, such as a driver’s license, and proof of residency (for example, a OPPD or MUD bill).  If you received an eviction notice, a OPPD disconnect notice, or a MUD shut-off notice, please bring that with you. 

The Holy Name SVdP conference is an equal opportunity provider.  The full USDA nondiscrimination statement can be found at the following link:

Support and Assistance

The Holy Name St. Vincent de Paul conference is dedicated to serving the poor in our neighborhood.  The neighborhood boundaries are 35th Street to 52nd Street (east to west) and Blondo Street to Sorensen Blvd (south to north).

Each year, if funds are available, we support hundreds of families in our area with groceries, rent, mortgage, and utility payment assistance (e.g., MUD and OPPD).

The food pantry is open every Wednesday from 4:00-6:00 pm.  We take interviews during that time for rent/utility assistance.  The pantry is located on the southwest corner of Holy Name Church (corner of Fontenelle Blvd and Maple Street).
