$10,000 Goal

Since 1955, our work has been crucial for our less fortunate neighbors across the 20 counties we cover, spanning Benicia to the Oregon border. 

In the last year our 1,245 volunteers and small staff have served over 142,717 individuals. 

With person-to-person interactions we address any challenge presented to us and find solutions to aid our brothers and sisters in need – short term or long term. Constantly serving with our motto of “No Act of Charity is Foreign to the Society”.

Our aid goes beyond a single type of charity, it includes but is not limited to financial assistance for rent, utilities, transportation, clothing, food, and furniture. As well as consultation, referral services, case management and mentorship. Offering diverse support from basic needs to facilitating a new start after a disaster or incarceration make the work we do limitless. 

Our highly trained volunteers, we generously call Vincentians, our Disaster Team, Exodus Program and Thrift Store are all avenues where we show that we are not limited to one act of charity.

This year our Big Day of Giving campaigns are concentrated on our Food Banks, New Truck for our Thrift Store and our Exodus and Disaster Program- donors are also welcome to donate to our main account for unrestricted use funds.
