The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international organization of laymen and women dedicated to helping the poor through practical works of charity. It is divided into two groups: the Vincentian volunteers and the Central Council.
People of good will who come from all walks of life, every age group and ethnic background, and are committed to the Society’s mission – to help people who are in need.
No, the Society offers material aid, emotional support and spiritual comfort to anyone who demonstrates a genuine need.
The Central Council, the professional arm of the Society, manages the Thrift Stores and housing programs and provides support services and technical assistance to the conference members. The Central Council fosters spiritual unity and communication among conferences in a geographic area.
The Central Council is funded primarily through the proceeds from Thrift Stores sales, contributions from the community, bequests, and grants.
