Our mission is to help those who are less fortunate so they can get back on their feet and start more productive and joyful lives.
Our Society is dedicated to feeding, clothing, housing, and healing individuals and families from all walks of life within our community, who have nowhere else to turn to for help in times of a temporary financial crisis.
We offer tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. Our aid may take the form of consultation or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. An essential precept of the Society's work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.
As first responders, we also provide information and direction as to where long-term solutions to their problems may be found.
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule.
Organized locally, Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.
