We are a group of parishioners from St. Peter Catholic Church, who inspired by Gospel values, strive to grow spiritually by serving those in need in our community of Jupiter and Jupiter Farms, in Palm Beach County, Florida.
We are one of 15 conferences within the St. Vincent de Paul - Palm Beach Council, and part of an international Catholic lay organization.
The Society is supported by your donations and by grants from private foundations. All funds obtained through donations and grants are directly utilized towards distributions to the needy.
We operate with 25 members who donate their time and talents to serve a population of over 200 families and individuals within our Jupiter and Jupiter Farms Communities.
The Society provides emergency financial assistance to low-income individuals and families without regard of age, gender, ethnical background, race, or religion.
We believe that the working poor, children, elderly, homeless, sick, disabled, and other disadvantaged members of our community should have a reliable source to assist them in times of a temporary financial emergency to ensure that their most essential needs are met.
We help hundreds of families at the verge of eviction, homelessness, facing sudden unemployment or illness, and are unable to make ends meet due to unforeseen circumstances, so they can get back on their feet.
Temporary Emergency Cash Program
We help our friends in need in times of a temporary monetary crisis so they can get back on their feet. We provide full or partial payment for critical bills such as rents or mortgages, utilities, temporary shelter, doctor visits, life-saving medicine, essential furniture, car repairs, car payments, food and gas cards, essential clothing, and bus, train, or airplane tickets, when relocation is needed to ensure a better or safer living.
Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing Program
We strive to eliminate homelessness in our Jupiter community and keep families from being evicted from their homes, by helping qualified families with the first month and deposit towards an apartment or home. This program is in collaboration with St. Vincent de Paul – Palm Beach Council and Catholic Charities Diocese of Palm Beach.
