The detriments of poverty, hunger, homelessness, and despair are a reality for over 150,000 Long Islanders. Although Long Island is one of the country's wealthiest regions, it also hides the needs of its less fortunate residents very well. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul works diligently to provide a comprehensive solution that’s tailored to the needs of each person we encounter that has a genuine need. We offer solutions that not only support an individual or family for a short period of time, but ones that give them the tools they need to become independent, thriving citizens of our community. With a helping hand, we believe anyone can have a better quality of life.
We do not discriminate based on race, creed or background. We help anyone who demonstrates a genuine need.
Will You Help Us, Help Others?
We challenge you to get involved with the Society. You can do something as small as donating your gently used goods, or something as big as becoming a Vincentian volunteer; donating your time, treasure and talents to the cause.
You will be amazed at how helping others has a way of transforming you. Witnessing the challenges of those much less fortunate and their strength to persevere nevertheless is one of the top reasons our volunteers continue to donate their time to help us serve others.
There are many ways that you can get involved with the Society.
We welcome you and your family to explore our participatory options as well as any new ideas that you have, and we thank you for your interest.
