What We Do
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a volunteer organization that offers direct aid to those in need across nine counties in North Texas. Through personal, compassionate interaction, the Society’s members provide short-term financial, material and emotional support to our neighbors in crisis.
In addition, broader Society programs and services help families address the underlying root causes of their basic unmet needs. Things like access to free prescription medication for those without insurance, or support in escaping predatory debt empower neighbors to build a life free from poverty.
Who We Are
Society members, affectionately called “Vincentians,” are joined by their passion of serving neighbors in need. Vincentians commit to membership in one of our 40+ local conferences for fellowship, training and spiritual guidance in their habit of service.
Meeting people at difficult times in their lives requires sensitivity, compassion and a deep respect for their struggles. The center of our service model is a person-to-person home visit, during which our trained staff and volunteers get to know our neighbors and hear their stories.
