NATIONAL COUNCIL OF THE UNITED STATES SOCIETY OF ST VINCENT DEPAU
October 11, 2013
The Society of St. Vincent De Paul mission is to serve those living in poverty. We don't call them poor, but those living in poverty. Anyone can overcome poverty with the right tools. We provide food, clothing and household goods around the world. Fredrick the founder of the society felt everyone should live a quality life. In some areas we help fund cleanup for drinking water, soup kitchens, assistance with utilities and rent. We advocate on behalf of those we serve thru our Voices of the Poor. Our dream is to reduce the numbers living in poverty through systemic change. We focus on teaching them the how to recognize those barriers and how to overcome. Most local conferences are made up of 100% volunteers who serve, because they are interested in assisting those in need. In my local chapter will serve over 1,000 people a week at our Client Choice Food pantry. We do home visit to the clients to bring and assistance if needed.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
That we could serve more and more people would volunteer. We could attract more volunteers. That young adults would become interested in the mission of the society. We could get more food for our food pantry
