A Network of Support for Neighbors in Need

More than 864 members at 39 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. 

This approach to volunteer service harkens back to the very beginning days of the international Society of St. Vincent de Paul in 1833, when founder Frederick Ozanam was a pioneer in leading others in service to the materially poor in Paris France, visiting families in their homes and offering food, coal for heat, and other support. What distinguished that service was the high level of respect and dignity extended to those being served. 

Today our parish conference members continue that tradition locally by providing food, utility and rent assistance, and other items of necessity to help neighbors in need in their local communities through difficult times, while also offering referrals to human services agencies and strategies and support to move out of poverty.

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