What We Do
There are many families and individuals who call on the support of the SVdP, St. Max Kolbe Conference during times of crisis and financial hardship. We respond immediately with compassion and possible financial support. The most basic activity of the Conference has been the visitation of the needy at their home.
Home visitations are the cornerstone of the ministry of the Society of SVdP. Those in need receive the simple fellowship of a listening ear and caring heart. No charity is foreign to the society of St. Vincent de Paul. All funds allotted are received thru donations and all the home visitors are volunteers.
