Assistance From the National Council

The National Council of the U.S., Society of St. Vincent de Paul does not provide direct assistance to neighbors in need. If you are seeking help or need more information about a previously submitted request:

  • Visit our Assistance and Services page to find the St. Vincent de Paul location nearest you.
  • Contact your community Catholic church and ask if they have a Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
  • Search the internet for “Society of St. Vincent de Paul” and the name of your city/town.

The National Council of the U.S., Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides financial support, best practices, training, education, and spiritual formation for the growth and health of the Society’s Councils, Conferences, and Special Works. With assistance from the National Council, local Councils and Conferences can better devote their own resources to serving their communities while developing and promoting innovative strategies that address social justice and assist neighbors in need.
