The Mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is “a network of friends, inspired by Gospel values, growing in holiness and building a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need.” The conference provides assistance to our friends in the Sudbury community including connecting our friends to a variety of programs offered including:

Home Visits

During Home Visits, Vincentians bring hope and financial resources to neighbors in need through assistance with rent, food, clothing, and other emergency needs. Along the way, we develop friendships with those in need, listening and praying together. You can Contact Us to schedule a home visit with one of our conference members.

Housing Assistance

Are you having trouble paying your rent or mortgage because of the COVID-19 pandemic? Have you lost your job or lost income during the Covid-19 health crisis? Are you at risk of becoming homeless? The Department of Housing and Community Development is ready to help families in need during the COVID-19 health crisis. The Emergency Housing Assistance during COVID-19 program might be able to help. For more general assistance with housing in Sudbury, review A Guide to Preserving and Finding Housing.

Transportation Assistance

Clothing and Thrift Stores

Receiving and distributing millions of pounds of clothing, thousands of pieces of furniture, and tons of household goods, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a major U. S. recycler. The lightly used items we provide to the poor at no cost can dramatically improve the quality of their lives. Revenues produced by store operations help subsidize our local outreach efforts.
