About Us

Extend mercy towards others, so that there can be no one in need whom you meet without helping. For what hope is there for us if God should withdraw His mercy from us?” —St. Vincent de Paul

By caring for the needy and suffering, we minister to Jesus Christ himself. At the Society of St. Vincent De Paul, our programs do just that. We offer our brothers and sisters a helping hand, a second chance, or an opportunity to get back on their feet again.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in St. Louis is a non-profit organization providing personal assistance with furniture, food, clothing, rent, utilities, transportation and companionship to people facing economic, emotional or spiritual crisis. An essential part of the Society’s work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.

Members, volunteers and staff served over 250,421 in 2009. As a non-profit charity, the Society relies almost exclusively on private individuals, businesses and organizations locally for support.

You do not have to be Catholic for us to serve you.

We serve you because we are Catholic.
