Since 1895, St. Vincent's Home has cared for children. As an orphanage, as a relocation center for displaced youngsters, as a residential treatment center for emotionally disabled adolescents, and as a child-placing agency through Catholic Charities, St. Vincent's Home helped children in need.
In 1973, the board of St. Vincent's Home changed the focus of its child care effort, closed the institution and determined to broaden its services. It established the St. Vincent's Home, which makes grants to organizations whose mission is consistent with that history.
To be considered at the Fall Board meeting, applications must be postmarked by September 15th. Applicants are to be located within the 22 counties of the Diocese of Davenport or serve children within the Diocese of Davenport
Important Criteria Change: All organizations that work with children must document their efforts to perform background checks of employees and volunteers that work or have direct contact with children in order to be eligible for funding.
If you received a grant you must also submit your progress report by September 15. New funding applications will not be considered until Progress Reports regarding previously awarded grants have been submitted.
