St. Vincent de Paul
In the spirit of love and justice, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides person-to-person services of time, talent and resources to help our neighbor in need. The Society provides assistance by visiting them in their homes. This personal contact in their homes is the distinctive character of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Our home visits promote friendship with those we serve and enable our Vincentians to more fully understand the suffering of those we visit and to best assess their needs. The aid we provide most often includes direct financial assistance for rent, utilities or transportation, as well as referral services to other agencies or organizations.
If you are in need of financial assistance please contact the parish office at 530-677-324 ext. 8 and leave a message. Please include your name, address, phone number and a brief description of your need.
