SVdP Community Pharmacy
Beginning in 1998, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Community Pharmacy 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 grew immensely.
The Community Pharmacy operated on donations of funds and medicine from the medical and pharmaceutical communities, along with non-medical businesses and caring individuals. Their support filled a large and critical gap that existed for many years by simply providing necessary prescribed medicines for people who cannot pay.
Our Community Pharmacy was recognized by the Louisiana Attorney General’s office, and featured in the Clarion Herald and Louisiana Weekly, along with nola.com.
Please note - the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Community Pharmacy closed February 2019. For information on prescription services, please contact Health Care for the Homeless at 504-658-2785, whose direct Pharmacy is Crescent City Pharmacy - 504-267-4100.
