The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a 501c3 non-profit organization established in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston in 1871.


It includes a network of 56 parish-based chapters, known as Conferences, with more than 1,800 volunteers, two Thrift Stores and a large food network of more than 20 neighborhood pantries.

All parish-based members of the Society, known as Vincentians, community volunteers, and staff work together as ONE SOCIETY.

Essential Elements

Spirituality. Friendship. Service.


Inspired by Gospel values, we grow spiritually through person to person service to all in need in our community. 

Our actions promote the dignity of the person, alleviate suffering and distress, while addressing the conditions that cause them through systemic change. 


We are a community actively living our faith by loving and providing hope to our neighbors. We envision a future where access to financial and social resources is not limited by where one lives.
