A Network of Support for Neighbors in Need

More than 765 volunteer members at 37 parish-based St. Vincent de Paul Conferences provide a network of support for people suffering from the effects of poverty, serving in a spirit of charity, humility, and friendship. Conference members provide food, utility and rent assistance, and other items of necessity to help neighbors in need through difficult times, while offering advocacy and referrals to appropriate human services agencies.

Through the tireless efforts of these volunteers, each year we provide over $997,973 in financial assistance and $652,069 in food to more than 69,825 households regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.  

For more information on starting a Parish Conference at your parish, or volunteering with an existing one, contact Marie Wicks at 410-662-0500, ext. 207.

St. Rita's, Dundalk Parish Conference helping a client

Like many areas around the country, the economy and job loss had a huge impact on Southeast Baltimore.  The volunteers at St. Rita’s Parish Conference in Dundalk see it on the faces and hear it through the stories of the nearly 60 families they sees twice a month for the Conferences’ food distribution.

“Our distribution begins at 10 a.m., but we see people lining up, even in the rain, snow and heat, starting at 6:00 a.m.”   - Debbi Bullington, St. Rita’s
