The Society of St. Vincent de Paul

A Catholic Digest Fave Five Charity
Members of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul (or "Vincentians" ) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. Our members come in every shade of skin color. Some of us are wealthy, some are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need.

  • Domestic Disaster Relief Fund Appeal

    The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is responding to the California wildfires. Vincentians are working with families who have lost their homes to the Middletown Valley wildfires. There are three SVdP Councils working with the survivors. SVdP volunteers have met with more than 300 families in just four days at the Disaster Assistance Center.

    At this point, SVdP is focusing its efforts on Middletown Valley Fires, as this was an affordable housing community and has greater challenges to recover. Many of the hardest hit areas were areas that had mainly lower income renters. The damage from these wildfires has been severe. The Valley Fire has killed four people, injured four firefighters, destroyed nearly 2,000 homes and structures, and displaced more than 1,200 people.

    The SVdP DSD will provide long-term recovery assistance for flood victims in South Carolina. The rain has set records all over the state, flooding entire towns. Thirteen dams in the state have failed, making the flooding even worse and more than 400,000 people lack safe drinking water. Please pray for all the families who have lost their homes to disasters and continue to support the efforts of Vincentians to help them. Please help now!

  • International Disasters

    A devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, just a few miles away from capital Kathmandu.  The earthquake flattened parts of the country and triggered avalanches in the Himalayas.  Thousands of deaths have been reported thus far, with many more casualties feared under the rubble.  Tens of thousands more people have been injured and displaced.

    The International Council of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (CGI) in Paris has requested our assistance to raise funds for two international disasters: the earthquake in Nepal and the island of Vanuatu, which suffered the impact of Category 5 Tropical Cyclone PAM, which destroyed much of the country’s agricultural industry.
