Ozanam Outreach Office

The Ozanam Outreach Program serves individuals and families who are in dire need of food, clothing, furniture, and financial assistance to pay for rent, utilities and prescriptions. Volunteers from the local Conference devote their time to providing aid and referrals to community residents so that they can access these items and services. Aid is provided three days a week at our District Office and serves those clients who reside in the downtown St. Petersburg area and have proper identification. Those who do not reside in the St. Francis area will be referred to their local Conference for further assistance.
