The St. Andrew Conference of The Society of St. Vincent de Paul addresses the material and spiritual needs of people primarily in the Milford/St. Andrew Parish area. We offer tangible goods, food and financial assistance to the needy. Their need is determined by personal contact with the persons requesting aid through home visits or appointments. Our Society serves as an outreach arm of St. Andrew Parish by accepting donations from parishioners and outside sources and distributing them to people in need.
The Ozanam House, which is located across the street from the church and next door to the Convent, is owned by the Parish and operated by St. Vincent de Paul. It is a transitional home for homeless families working to find a solution to their housing problem. The house gives them a period of time to accumulate savings toward rent deposit or down payment and advance toward self-sufficiency in their housing needs. The Ozanam House is not an emergency shelter.
The St. Martin's District Council store is a cooperative store run by the parishes of the district. It is located at 1707 St. Route 28, Goshen, OH 45122.
