A Mission Rooted in Compassion

Vincentian was founded in Pittsburgh in 1924 with a simple purpose: to care for those who could not care for themselves. Nearly 100 years later, these nonprofit, mission-based roots continue to define Vincentian. Dedicated to meeting unmet needs in our communities and being an employer of choice by the caregivers, Vincentian’s top priority – and passion – is people. We “Share Everything, Keep Nothing” because it’s what we’ve always done. Every day, for more than 100 years.

An Intergenerational Vision

Segmenting people by age or audience is counterintuitive to the human condition. We all share a need for connection to others. Traditionally, older adults are whisked to their own location, children to another, college students to another...and so it goes. But that is not how it is at Vincentian.
