1 Start with a tour
See if the Vincent House is a good fit. Start by scheduling a tour of one of our locations.
See the facility, meet members, talk to the staff, and discuss what our program can offer.
2 Become a member
If an invitation to membership is offered, a application and eligibility requirements will need to be completed and confirmed.
Membership is voluntary and for life; and there is no cost.
3 Gain skills to change your life
Find a place where you are wanted, needed and valued.
Work side-by-side with the Vincent House staff. We’re here to help members build skills to find and keep employment, return to school, locate stable housing, and much more.
Your generosity will allow us to help more adults living with mental illness
Vincent House has served over 1,225 members, but more need your help.
In Florida, over half of adults with a mental illness are going untreated.
Your donation will help us to fulfill the needs of those in your community who are facing daily challenges with mental health.
The myths that generate negative stigma around mental illness, and the lack of funding, stand in the way of the life saving help many people need.
