OUR VISION

Neighbors helping neighbors in need through local Parish Conferences

OUR MISSION

  • Organize and assist volunteers at Parish Conferences
  • Grow spiritually
  • Share resources

OUR MOTTO

"I was  hungry and you gave me food; thirsty and you gave me drink; a stranger and you welcomed me; naked and you clothed me; sick and you cared for me; in prison and you visited me." Matt 25:35

OUR GOALS

In the tradition of our founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and our patron, St. Vincent de Paul

------ To support and enhance our service to those in need by undertaking activities which are guided by Catholic social teaching.

 ------ To better serve the needy by supporting the development and growth of Parish Conferences


HOW WE MAKE AN IMPACT

The Parish Conferences, through the Council of Santa Cruz County, are able to provide the services of a larger professionally-run Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization without sacrificing local direction and the passion of lay volunteers doing good in their own neighborhoods.

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE

  • Become a volunteer by joining at the Parish Conference level or at the Council level
  • Donate funds to the Council or funds or food to local Parishes and their food pantries
  • Donate autos through the National Auto Donation Program
