Society of St. Vincent de Paul
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a network of friends, inspired by Gospel values, growing in holiness and building a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need. We believe in growing community - connecting the disconnected - through spirituality, friendship, and service. As a Catholic lay organization, an essential part of the Society’s work is to maintain the confidentiality and dignity of those being served, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or age.
The society consists of more than 400 volunteer members belonging to 31 parish-based conferences. Volunteers make home visits to those in need to provide person-to-person services, including arranging utility assistance and assisting with housing and transportation needs. The Society also operates 5 Omaha thrift stores and a food pantry.
In fiscal year 2020 the Society assisted our neighbors with over $1,900,000 in direct aid and over $200,000 in food.
