St. Vincent Mission is a community of people in Appalachia dedicated to sharing the expression of Christian Values. We believe that all persons have a God-ordained right to the basic needs of life in order to meet their full potential. This is accomplished through concrete programs that encourage discovery, development and use of our personal gifts. Our Mission is one of HOPE that leads us toward a vision of continuous growth.
Our priorities are to show our community the Love of Christ by helping them bring themselves out of poverty. We do this by:
• Offering programs that include those we serve as the solution to their current challenges.
• Providing work opportunities and education to those seeking employment.
• Encouraging sustainable living through wise spending, gardening and self-help.
St. Vincent Mission’s Grow Appalachia program works within our community to teach organic gardening, build participant’s skills and knowledge and aids in eliminating food insecurity for those we partner with.
