VINCENTIANS meet face-to-face with clients needing emergency assistance to avoid eviction or utility shut-off. Vincentian Conferences are active in 30 Catholic parishes within the Omaha area. Ask your local parish about a Society Conference.
OZANAM OUTREACH volunteers help provide emergency assistance, to those not living within a current Vincentian conference area. Meet one-on-one with struggling individuals and families, while traveling in pairs, as is the Vincentian rule, helping as we can with the Ozanam donations received.
HELP LINE providers take the initial “call for help,” through our automated phone system, which translates phone messages to email. Help Line volunteers, work from home on their personal computers to direct potential clients in need to the correct Vincentian parish conference within the Omaha area.
