Your donation helps provide direct help to the poor in the local communities throughout the United States. Since 1845, Vincentians have been meeting face-to-face with individuals and families in poverty to assess their needs. Examples of help provided include housing and utility assistance, job training and placement as well as access to food, clothing and medical care. The National Council makes grants to the local SVdPs (known as Councils and Conferences) through its Friends of the Poor® Grants, systemic change and disaster relief efforts.
