Get Help

Emergency Assistance

St. Vinnie’s is here to help. If you need emergency assistance to help pay for basic needs, such as rent, utilities, gas, food, clothing or links to other resources, we want to help.

We review all requests and try to respond in a timely manner. Due to an increase in requests, it may take up to 72 hours to get a call back. We may also request a home or office visit to find out what you need. You do not need to be a member of any religion or faith to receive help. We welcome all who seek our services.

Please email us at assistance@svdptacoma.org or call the Helpline at 253 426-1710. Include your basic information, zip code and assistance requested and a team member will contact you within 24-72 hours –either from our office or one of our St. Vincent Parish Conferences.

Our Conferences

Our local Conferences consist of compassionate volunteers from Catholic churches who are members of St. Vincent de Paul of Tacoma, Pierce County. Again, you do not need to be a member of any religion or faith to receive help. We welcome all who seek our services.

Conferences tend to assist those in need that reside in their zip code and also keep their own office hours. Please call the Conference directly if you would like to request assistance, or please email assistance@svdptacoma.org or call the Helpline at 253 426-1710.
