We are "a network of friends, inspired by Gospel values, growing in holiness and building a more just world." Founded in 1833, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a worldwide organization of lay Catholics, following Christ's call to serve the poor, the suffering, and the deprived. Our founding activity, still practiced today, is the Home Visit. Through these visits, Vincentian members establish personal relationships with our neighbors in need, not only providing material assistance such as rent, utilities, food, or clothing, but also offering friendship, understanding, and prayer. The Society's nearly 100,000 trained volunteers in the United States provided 8.9 million hours of volunteer service in 2020, helping more than 4.4 million people through visits to homes, prisons, and hospitals at a value of more than $1.4 billion dollars.
