Mission Statement:
    The mission of the Society of St. Paul de Vincent is to provide quiet and discreet assistance, both spiritually and materially, to needy families and individuals. Financial assistance may be provided for a wide range of needs including: medical and dental care, housing, utilities, food, clothing, transportation, etc. regardless of religion, race or ethnicity. Assistance is intended primarily for situations precipitated by unforeseen events or extraordinary personal crisis and may be provided directly or in cooperation with other area human service agencies. In general, it is not provided on a continuing basis. When warranted by circumstances or financial need, members of the Society arrange to meet with individuals or families in their home. The "home visit" is considered to be the very essence and foundation of the Society.

    Funds are raised through the operation of a Thrift Store on Westerly Parkway, State College.
