"You are the servant of the poor..........They are your masters, and the more difficult they will be, the more unjust and insulting, the more love you must give them. It is your love alone the poor will forgive you by the bread you will give them."

Future Plans of St. Vincent DePaul of La Pine

Our Expanded Social Services Program on Morson.

Our intent is to retain the Morson property to house an expanded Social Services operation. Our immediate needs would be to acquire a walk-in cooler and freezer for food storage allowing us to reduce our utility bills. This project fulfills the long-term vision of the SVDP Board to expand our services for our neighbors in need throughout our 10,000 square mile service area. Our intent is to report regularly to our neighbors regarding our progress.

Questions?? Please contact anyone of the board members regarding your thoughts to improve our services. We intend to expand our services with added volunteer support. We also intend to cooperate fully with other South County social services organizations, particularly La Pine Community Kitchen, Sunriver Care/Share and the Cascade Faith Network of local La Pine Churches.

Financial Reports

In 2015-16 the La Pine Conference provided 2,300 households in South Deschutes County with 3,806 food boxes, $3,300 in store merchandise, $34,400 in electrical utility costs and $5,300 in medical and dental assistance. Employing 15 full and part-time employees, SVDP has a payroll of over $140,000 annually. These funds are recycled throughout the La Pine community where the unemployment rate exceeds 15%. For donations or volunteer support contact Jamie Smith at Social Services at (541) 536-6135. The hours at Social services are 9:00 am to noon and 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm, Monday through Thursday.

An average client profile shows that 70% of our clients are women, with an average age of 46 and have two children. Their average monthly income ranges from $1,000 to $1,500 and they receive a food box each month. Although the newly incorporated City of La Pine has a population of 1,500, we serve the greater area of southern Deschutes, Northern Klamath and Lake counties with a population base of over 16,000 residents.

La Pine St. Vincent de Paul Conference celebrated their new retail thrift store on August 21, 2010 by having Holy Redeemer Parish's Pastor, Father Jose Mudakodiyil, bless the facility. Over 300 people (volunteers, customers, BOD, Lion's Club and Knights of Columbus members) celebrated this customer appreciation day in and around the new 8,000 square foot complex located near the La Pine post office on Huntington Road.

Thank you to all the donors (business and private) and the many volunteers who have made our social services a success. The needs in the La Pine area continue to increase with the increasing unemployment rates.
