I had the privelege of volunteering with a program that Saint Vincent de Paul conducts in the summertime, in conjunction with Kraft Foods, that focuses on teaching healthy, cost effective eating and lifestyle habits to underpriveleged children aged 8-13 years old. For most of these kids, the meals they were given at the program were the most substantial meals they would be able to eat, if not the only meals. With childhood obesity at an all-time high, the progressive attitude of Saint Vincent de Paul and their efforts to jump start healthy lifestyle choices for these children is imperative to securing a vibrant future for the younger generation. Staff members at Saint Vincent de Paul took the time to make the meals themselves at home, making enough for twenty children and transported them, as well. St. Vincent de Paul's unwavering commitment to bettering the community is unmatched, from camps, well providing discounted business- professional clothing to help people find jobs and get back on their feet, emergency bags with food when families find themselves in a crisis, and so much more. This organization receives nothing but my highest respect and praise.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

possibly expand more offices to the metro Atlanta area, so that staff members would not have to drive so far and they could better serve the surrounding communities.

It is truly amazing to see all of the great work that St. Vincent de Paul of Atlanta does. Every time I am in their support center and see the people that are getting the needed help it is inspiring. Everyone that works in the organization has a common goal and works together to achieve their goals.

I have worked with St. Vincent DePaul for almost 10 years and am constantly impressed with the level of service they deliver to the communities they serve. Most importantly, they constantly strive to lower operating costs to ensure every dollar they bring in gets its highest value when redeployed back into the community. Keep up the great work!

I have worked with St. Vincent de Paul of Atlanta helping to strengthen their advocacy and government outreach abilities. In my short time with them I quickly became impressed by the sheer drive and devotion the origination has for its mission. Moreover the staff are highly competent and dedicated to having their nonprofit meet the needs of their clients in a manner than is both efficient and effective.

Greater outreach to other faith based groups. As a non catholic, the organization and its good work was largely unknown to me before now.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?

For more than 100 years in north and middle Georgia, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul's thousands of volunteers have met people in need where they are, in their homes, at local restaurants, at their local churches, to conduct individual needs assessments in order to customize poverty relief services which address immediate needs and teach ways to improve their capacity to become self-sufficient.

We are only 1 of 3 agencies in our entire county that provides direct aid to our community. We have affected in a positive way over thousands of families in the last 4 years by buying meds., feeding, paying utilities, rent, mortgages, car ins., and sometimes, just being there to listen to their stories. It a great blessing to be able to serve our community in such a way.

More Feedback

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to helping the homeless, the deprived, the poor in a positive way.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

work with our clients on a long term basic to enable them to become more stable in their lives.

We help to feed, clothe and shelter people in our community who have nowhere else to turn. We visit them in their homes and try to bring comfort as well as financial and food assistance.
