St. Vincent de Paul Society Sacramento Council
In the spirit of love and justice, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Sacramento Council, through its districts and conferences throughout the Diocese of Sacramento, provides person-to-person services of time, talent, and resources to help our neighbors in need. Our organization provides direct assistance to the community's most vulnerable residents-those who live in poverty and those who are struggling to make ends meet. No charity is foreign to the Society. #HelpUsHelpOthers

Our top needs:
- Funding: Unrestricted - Every donation we receive, goes right back into serving the poor in the Sacramento Area. Raising Unrestricted funds, allows us to promote the expansion of council service programs, (e.g., disaster relief, refugee assistance) and direct financial and/or training support to our conferences. It also allows us the ability to strengthen our infrastructure administratively as we are run entirely on a volunteer basis.
- Funding: Program - As the needs have been rising, we are growing our programs. Our programming includes our Disaster Relief program supporting those nationally and locally when emergency events happen. Supporting those in our Housing Resettlement Program for homeless transitioning into housing and refugee resettlement programs. And growing our network of resources through our Home Visit Program, Youth Programs, and our Resource Center.
- In-Kind Donations - Last year, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, through its local conferences, served almost a quarter of a million people in need in the vast area of the Sacramento Diocese. Food, clothing, housing, whatever is needed. Sadly, our efforts reached only a fraction of those in poverty in our communities. As we seek to expand our charitable services, we know that we can only help others with your help.
- Volunteers - Our entire organization runs 100% on unpaid volunteers. As such, volunteers are the lifeline to our mission.This need expands to volunteers who are interested in serving the Society, as well as those who are interested in serving as members of our Board of Directors as well.
- Technology - The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is growing to meet the needs of the 21st century and technology is a huge part of that. As we grow, we are always in need of additional technology to train our volunteers, and better support the needs of those we serve through mentoring and education.
