Our Vision and Mission
Neighbors helping neighbors in need through local parish conferences.
In the spirit of love and justice, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Santa Clara County provides person-to-person services of time, talent and resources to help our neighbors in need.
There are families and individuals throughout Santa Clara County who right now are in desperate need of our love and support. Many of them feel no one is listening and that is why the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is here. We listen as well as respond to people in crisis. We offer them hope when they feel all but forgotten by society, and we make certain all who contact us are helped in every way possible.
Together we can make a vast difference for them. Please partner with us to share resources with the men, women, and children in our community.
SV GIVES A SUCCESS FOR SVdP!
The SV (Silicon Valley) Gives 24-hour fundraiser held in Santa Clara County on May 5th was a great success for St. Vincent de Paul. It is through the kindness and generosity of individuals helping those in need that allows us to provide outreach to families struggling to make ends meet. We wish to express our sincere appreciation to those who donated during this very worthwhile event. We received donations from individuals throughout Santa Clara County and the United States. SVdP would also like to recognize the Robert N. and Florence Slinger Foundation for their generous matching grant. Pictured above are Helene Stewart, President of SVdP SCC and Donna Beres, VP.

CARS WITH DENTS WILL PAY RENTS
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a way to help a needy family stay together in their home AND make your neighbors happy? Well, SVdP has just the program. You can donate that old auto to SVdP and we will turn it into funds that will help a needy family stay together, in their home. It’s a true win-win-win. You get rid of that old car at no cost to you (and you can write it off on your taxes), we in turn collect the car and use it to raise money to help the needy, and your neighbors are happy because they no longer have to look at it! AND, we’ll take it with or without dents! Just call us at 1-800-322-8284 or click the image above.
CAN A GROUPS OF STUDENTS MAKE A DIFFERENCE? INDEED THEY CAN!
