Sometimes life gets in the way....emergencies happen and you find that you cannot make this month's rent; or you are behind with your utilites; maybe are in need of food to feed your family. Whatever you need, you are not alone. Please call us. Society of St Vincent de Paul at Mary, Mother of God Parish members are here to help you in your hour of need. We are here to accompany you on your journey no matter the need....no work of charity is foreign to the Society. We serve the poor in charity, but we are not an agency.
Voice of the Poor (VOP) is the advocacy arm of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. With members representing every section and demographic of the nation, we identify issues critical to those living in poverty and need, and help bring attention to them so communities and elected officials can help develop strategies and tactics that will provide the most effective and efficient means to reduce or eliminate poverty. While financial assistance is important, it is even more important to serve personally, showing our neighbors that God is always with them, even in their darkest hour. He wants to help, loving them so much that He sends His people to serve, comfort, and to pray with them.

Our center also provides access to healthcare referrals and supportive housing options. With the support of our compassionate staff and volunteers, we aim to inspire positive change and help individuals overcome obstacles. Together, we can create a stronger and more resilient community.
