Society of St. Vincent de Paul
- New York
Hearing the cry of the poor, responding to their needs and advocating for their rights…
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 the needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an advocate on behalf of the poor, seeking to discover the root causes of poverty and to remedy its effects.
“Need, not creed” determines who is helped, and how.
Although affiliated with the Catholic Church, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul helps anyone in need regardless of their race, religion, age, or background. Likewise, no work of charity is foreign to the Society. Consequently, we provide financial and material assistance, along with emotional and spiritual comfort to help people facing all sorts of challenges.
