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.

Our Programs

St. Vincent de Paul Pharmacy

The first freestanding charitable pharmacy in Texas, SVdP Pharmacy provides free medication to patients in need.

Mini Loan Program

The Mini Loan Program exists to help those who are trapped in overwhelming debt due to predatory lenders, or unexpected major expenses like hospital bills or car repairs.

StudyTime

StudyTime serves K-8 students and families by supporting their educational journeys with mentorship, after school tutoring, scholarships, and much more.

St. Vincent Center

A Hub of Collaboration and Services for neighbors in southern Dallas County in need of employment and education, health and nutrition, and emergency assistance.

Mission

A network of friends, inspired by Gospel values, growing in holiness and building a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need.

Needs

Because of the high volume of need throughout North Texas, we greatly appreciate regular volunteers in every one of our programs. Volunteer opportunities include tutoring students and facilitating the StudyTime program, loan processing for the Mini Loan Program, and intake volunteers at the Pharmacy who answer questions and help staff process paperwork.

Volunteers can provide both project and human capital support at our St. Vincent Center in Lancaster, TX. Project opportunities include: hosting a hygiene item drive and assembling comfort kits for the homeless, conducting a toy/coat drive for our Christmas assistance efforts and participating in gift back assembly and distribution. Human capital projects could include engaging in job coaching and developing support (resume review and writing assistance, conducting mock interview, etc.)

You can get involved with us in so many different ways - from volunteering your time to joining one of our 39 active Conferences. Get started today by finding out more information about what position would best suit YOU!
