St. Vincent DePaul Society
The St. Vincent DePaul Society is an international organization comprised of lay persons whose objectives involve them in social and charitable work through their services to the poor. It is open to anyone wishing to live their faith by loving and serving their neighbor.
The Society's charitable services, administered through our network of parish volunteer groups called "Conferences," are part of the life of the Catholic Church.
Its ministry, through person-to-person contact, encompasses every form of aid that alleviates suffering and promotes the dignity and integrity of mankind. It serves everyone regardless of creed, opinion, color or origin.
Faithful to its founders, the Society constantly strives to renew and adapt itself to the changing conditions of the world. Members, united in the same spirit of poverty and sharing, form with those they help one and the same family throughout the world. The Vincentian is here to SERVE and not to JUDGE.
In Lincoln, Vincentian volunteers answer calls for aid that come in through the Society's Help Line. Nearly every request for aid is accompanied by a home visit. Volunteers also meet the needs of the poor by running the St. Vincent de Paul Outreach Center at 2215 O Street, Lincoln NE 68503
