Notes:

Emergency Needs Program ~

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

Used clothing is accepted January through September. Summer clothing is especially needed.

=====
Home Repairs ~

The Home Repair mission serves several counties in our area. We have helped people add a room to take care of a family member, helped people rebuild who have had a fire or flood and built countless wheelchair ramps for those who could not normally have afforded it.

=====
Volunteer Programs ~

The Mission hosts groups of college students, churches and individual volunteers from across the nation who come to repair substandard housing.

The work projects may consist of re-roofing a house, building a room addition, building a wheelchair ramp, or doing other home repairs for substandard housing. Volunteers usually raise the funds to finance their participation. Volunteers leave Eastern Kentucky with a better understanding of the positive and negative aspects of the region, the coal industry and the local people.

=====
Scholarship Fund ~

St. Vincent Mission is committed to helping those who wish to get a higher education be able to get one. The Mission funds educationall scholarships to students who show financial need and the ability to maintain college level work.

=====
Christmas Store ~

The Mission provides a Christmas Store each December for families who would otherwise have little or nothing for Christmas. Donations of new clothes, toys, tools, household items, personal care items, cleaning products laundry supplies and money are solicited throughout the year by the Mission staff for distribution in mid-December.

Invitations are sent to the most needy families in the area in early December. When the parents arrive to select Christmas gifts for their families they are asked to donate two dollars to the Mission. The second year a family participates in the Christmas program they are asked to take part in budget counseling.

Each subsequent year families are asked to give 12 hours of community service at St. Vincent Mission, a local school or other non-profit organization.
