FOOD BANK & HELP CENTRE; In 2008 Sarnia Saint Vincent de Paul opened the Help Centre on Davis St; this was done to help people experiencing difficulties.  Saint Vincent de Paul streamlines the community needs through the Catholic church parishes; this helps prevent  duplication of services.  We hope to help people with food and funding, to assist with their basic needs.  For example St. Vincent de Paul assists those in need with rent, utilities, other household bills, clothing, funding for training, connection to a 1/2 free appointment with a lawyer, dental bill, life skills guidance.  Please call us at 519–337-1058 if you need assistance today.
