Since 1998, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Community Pharmacy has offered prescription medication free of charge to the underserved population in the New Orleans area - namely the homeless, indigent and elderly. These individuals are usually on a fixed income and in most cases, cannot afford needed medication prescribed by physicians. Due to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the economic recession that followed, the number of uninsured and working poor in the city has grown immensely.
The Community Pharmacy operates on donations of funds and medicine from the medical and pharmaceutical communities, along with non-medical businesses and caring individuals. Their support has filled a large and critical gap that has existed for many years by simply providing necessary prescribed medicines for people who cannot pay.
Our Community Pharmacy has been recognized by the Louisiana Attorney General’s office, and featured in the Clarion Herald and Louisiana Weekly, along with nola.com.
The Community Pharmacy is located at 1995 Gentilly Blvd, Suite C18, near Gentilly and DeSaix Boulevards. We take clients Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning at 8:00am (please arrive by 10:00am to be served the same day). Clients will be screened to determine eligibility for assistance with prescription medicine.
The following information must be provided at the time of your initial visit:
