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.
Mobile Health Outreach Ministry
Our Mobile Health Outreach Ministry is the only mobile provider of free acute and preventive medical care in Northeast Florida. Our associates travel throughout the region to bring compassionate medical care, disease management, and preventative health education to those who would otherwise have no access to healthcare.
How We Help
Ascension St. Vincent's Foundation works to bridge the gaps to deliver compassionate, personalized healthcare to all, with a special attention to persons living in poverty and those most vulnerable. We turn community goodwill and financial donations into essential resources. Whether we’re funding mobile health outreach programs, early detection technology or new health care facilities, our goal is always the same – making direct and meaningful impacts in people’s lives.
