What do we do?

At St. Vincent de Paul, we offer assistance to over 84,000 indiviuals in South Bend who need our help each year. We offer food, clothing, and furntiture, and emergency financial assistance.

Memebers of the Society (or “Vincentian") are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to indiviuals in need. We believe that our blessings (time, talent, or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters who need our help.
