About Us

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic volunteer organization dedicated to helping all people in need, regardless of faith. In doing this work, we enrich our lives spiritually.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul–Archdiocesan Council of Omaha serves individuals and families in need throughout the Omaha metropolitan area. The society consists of more than 400 volunteer members belonging to 34 parish-based conferences. Volunteers make home visits to those in need to provide person-to-person services, including arranging utility assistance and assisting with housing and transportation needs. The Society also operates three thrift stores and a food pantry.

In fiscal year 2014, the Society assisted 20,000 people, provided $600,000 in direct aid. As a Catholic lay organization, an essential part of the Society’s work is to maintain the confidentiality and dignity of those being served, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or age.
