WHO WE ARE...
In the spirit of love and justice, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Sacramento Diocesan Council provides help to our neighbors in need through person-to-person service. Our organization, through a network of charity, provides help to those who live in poverty and struggle to make ends meet. No charity is foreign to the Society.
Members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (or Vincentians) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to persons in need. It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique.
Vincentians visit those in need in their homes to assess how best to help. It could be financial aid, tangible aid, such as furniture, food, or diapers, or spiritual help.
Through its Voice of the Poor, the Society also has an advocacy role for those who are defenseless or voiceless.
We operate special works, such as thrift stores and clothes closets, and a program for helping welcome back those who have been incarcerated. The Society is engaged in disaster relief services here and throughout the world.
