The detriments of poverty, hunger, homelessness, and despair are a reality for thousands of Long Islanders. Because Long Island is one of the country's wealthiest regions, it 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. 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 long-term. 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. 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 of abating poverty on Long Island.
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.
