Vincentians are the heart of our service. Neighborhood outreach teams form 48 local parish groups called Conferences. Vincentians make nearly 16,000 in-home, person-to-person visits each year, with over 1,200 volunteers travelling in pairs to provide neighbor-to-neighbor assistance.

Home visits give us a true assessment of the needs of the individuals and families requesting help. By visiting people in their homes, they do not have to take time off from work, arrange for childcare, or find transportation.

St. Vincent de Paul helps people avoid eviction by providing rent and utility assistance as well as vouchers for gasoline, food, and other basic supplies. We also refer callers to other agencies and services when necessary and appropriate. A combination of donations, grants, funds raised by our Vincentian Conferences, and our thrift store revenues fund this direct assistance.
