Parish Conferences

The heart and soul of the St. Vincent de Paul Society is the Parish Conference. Through their local Church, volunteers called Vincentians make the traditional "home visit" to assess needs and to provide food and other types of assistance. One Society slogan is "No act of charity is foreign to the Society."

Vincentians give freely of themselves to grow spiritually through service to others, giving neighbor-to-neighbor assistance to persons in need without any type of discrimination.  

You can leave a message at the Need Line in both English and Spanish.
