Vincentian Volunteers of Cincinnati is an 11-month-long, faith-based residential service program that provides young professionals ages 21-30 an opportunity to live in faith, grow in friendship and serve in solidarity by giving deeply of themselves to their neighbors in need. VVCs live in intentional community and serve full-time in St. Vincent de Paul – Cincinnati’s West End Outreach Center and Service Learning Center, providing both direct and indirect service to our neighbors in need.
As the only charitable pharmacy in southwest Ohio, we meet one-on-one to provide individual support and assistance to each neighbor seeking medication assistance, qualifying them for services and assessing other basic needs. Working in the Charitable Pharmacy, you serve as a linkage to a very important resource, completing the intake process to provide people with access to free prescription medication. This experience will be beneficial for people interested in both healthcare administration and direct patient care professions. We serve patients in Hamilton, Clermont, Warren and Butler counties. Knowledge and interest in the healthcare field helpful but not necessary.
Home located down the street from service placement. Each volunteer will have their own bedroom with shared bathrooms, kitchen, and living space.
Benefits: monthly personal stipend, education award upon program completion to apply toward student loans or future schooling, personal and spiritual formation in the Vincentian tradition, health insurance, vehicle access for program-related and community activities, room and board (utilities included) at the fully furnished VVC house, professional development and career exploration, assistance in seeking loan deferment, monthly cell phone reimbursement, wireless internet access.
