Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Galveston - Houston

We are a volunteer organization that serves Underserved Communities regardless of creed, ethnic or social background, health, gender, religious or political affiliations.


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


It includes a network of more than 50 parish-based chapters, known as Conferences, with more than 1,700 volunteers, and a large food & clothing pantry network.

As ONE Society, all parish-based members of the Society, known as Vincentians, synergistically collaborate with community volunteers and mission-driven organizations to make an impact in the lives of others throughout the Greater Houston area.


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.
