Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation serves as the gateway to hope and health for Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia’s most vulnerable people. We raise funds and awareness to support the advanced medical treatment offered in Ascension St. Vincent’s healthcare facilities and to help care for individuals and families who are impoverished and underinsured through our community outreach ministries. Our mission is based on the tradition of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul who founded us more than a century ago. In that spirit, we provide spiritually centered, holistic care for all people.
We offer those in need kindness, comfort and healing – and invite those with blessings to join our mission to improve the health and well-being of the communities we are so blessed to serve.
