Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago

Special Video Presentation

157 years of helping those in need

Heartfelt comments from SVdP members known as Vincentians, and several client-friends who were willing to go before the camera to share their story reveal how they were not impoverished by choice but by life changing circumstances that can happen to anyone.

The help they received from SVdP is explained with much gratitude in hopes more awareness is brought before people who have no idea of the huge impact SVdP has on individuals and families in need. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is the oldest charity in Chicago and has provided assistance to hundreds of thousands of Cook and Lake County residents since 1857.
