Life can be tough.
A medical crisis, a family emergency, a lost job—it doesn’t take much to become overwhelmed and in need of a little help. Maybe it’s a prayer or a shoulder to cry on. Maybe it’s help paying the bills. It can happen to any of us, not just those living on the edge of poverty. This is why members of St. Vincent de Paul—known as Vincentians—serve.
The core of our Society’s work is done by more than 1,100 Vincentians who serve in 56 St. Vincent de Paul Conferences across Hamilton County. A Conference is a small group of Vincentians, typically associated with a parish or school, who visit those in need to assess their situations and help however possible.
Gifted with an awareness that our blessings should be shared with others, Vincentians are granted the opportunity to give back—to make a difference in their community. It doesn’t require great skill, just a great heart.
