About Us

Compelled to action by the convictions of our founders, St. Vincent de Paul of Seattle and King County joins the community to listen, engage, and build relationships that assist and advocate for individuals and families to meet basic needs and achieve stability and self-sufficiency.

We have been doing work in Seattle and King County for close to 100 years and around the world for 185 years. We have learned that nothing in our world remains static. Change is inevitable. It is incumbent upon us to adapt, evolve and be capable of managing ever-changing environments. At St. Vincent de Paul, we call this mission renewal.

St. Vincent de Paul in Seattle and King County is made up of more than 50 neighborhood-based conferences—“all-volunteer Vincentian neighborhood support groups” who make personal in-home visits and personal contacts to help people with survival and self-sufficiency support. Our neighborhood volunteers are the heart, soul, and face of our organization. We would not exist without them.

We help reduce homelessness, saving taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. How? We make close to 200 home visits per week, assisting families and individuals with rent, utility payments, food and other basic needs.

Vincentian volunteers work with people who are suffering and need help. Each conference has a group of members who gather to serve people who need help in their area. These visits help determine the exact nature and detail of the assistance required to help our neighbors. Our Vincentian volunteers go in pairs and make 12,500 home visits annually.
