The conference of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SVDP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving those in need with basics for human dignity by aiding the poor. Members, called Vincentians, make person to person visits with families and individuals facing hardships, offering basic resources for human dignity such as food, shelter, and clothing. Assistance includes help with utility bills, rent, transportation, medical expenses, and emotional/spiritual support to ease a difficult time.  The SVDP intake line is 224-522-8863.
