The cofounder and former CEO of Security National Automotive Acceptance, Corp., Becky Catino maintains an active presence in her local community. Among her other civic activities, Becky Catino chairs the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Cincinnati.

The charity has a 140-plus-year history of helping people in need throughout Hamilton County and southwest Ohio. The organization maintains seven thrift shops across the region and an equal number of food pantries. St. Vincent de Paul also provides comprehensive social service and immediate financial assistance to those who cannot afford food or make utility payments.

In November 2015, St. Vincent de Paul had its annual Day of Online Giving, in which any donation up to $22,000 generated a dollar-for-dollar matching contribution. Featured as a Hope Lives story on the St. Vincent de Paul website is Jada, a young girl whose parents had lost their jobs and only means of support. Facing uncertainty as to whether she could remain in her home from day-to-day, Jada benefitted directly from the day of giving.
