Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is composed of women and men who seek their personal holiness through works of charity. In this essential way, the Society differs from charitable associations or agencies whose principal objective is not the spiritual advancement of their members but the doing of good for someone else.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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.

Vincentians put faith into action in a practical way and in a spiritual context. Unlike social service agencies, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is not simply a material service provider. At the heart of our work are person-to-person encounters (known as Home Visits) and acts of Christian love for our neighbors, whoever they may be. Each Conference (or local group of Vincentians) is open to providing any service that is needed in their community; possible examples include, but are not limited to: operating food pantries and thrift stores, visiting the sick, accompanying the incarcerated, helping those without housing, providing furniture, and offering disaster relief.

The Society has almost 98,000 members in almost 4,500 Conferences throughout the United States. Annually, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides more than $3 billion worth of goods and services across the United States, assisting more than 5 million people.

In 2016, Vincentians contributed a total revenue of $8,238,202. By 2018, those numbers had increased to $19,784,773. We are still collecting data for FY 2019.
