The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a nonprofit organization that provides direct assistance to a community's most vulnerable residents—those who live in poverty and those who are struggling to make ends meet. Our goal is to help them meet basic needs, build self-sufficiency, and ultimately break the cycle of poverty. Instead of only helping those who come to us, we provide one-on-one service through our home visits, being invited into people's homes to learn the extent of their needs before determining how to help.

Following the tradition of Frederic Ozanam, founder of the International Society of St. Vincent de Paul, we serve anyone in need, within our means.

Subject to available resources, the aid we provide most often includes:

  • food
  • financial assistance for rent and utilities, and emergency housing
  • clothing
  • beds & furniture
  • consultation, referral and intervention services

Each year, the operations of the Sacramento Diocesan Council on average help over 225,000 needy people throughout the Diocese of Sacramento.
