The essential elements of the Society are spirituality, friendship, and service. These elements are the essence of a home visit with those who are in immediate need of assistance. By visiting their homes, Vincentians experience first-hand their living conditions and needs.
Although Vincentians are not case workers, they do undergo special training to learn how to interact with the diverse communities of the Greater Houston area in a compassionate manner. Families are provided the dignity deserved when Vincentians allow the Holy Spirit to guide their interaction with the individual and their family members.
