Underserved Communities Initiative


This initiative includes a grant program that enables financially limited Conferences to offer financial assistance to neighbors in underserved areas during crisis and disaster.

Vincentians commit to building healthy, vibrant Conferences to continuously serve the Greater Houston area when these communities face hardships.


After being given the fish during crisis, the Society then focuses on teaching people how to fish to feed their families for a lifetime.

The Systemic Change Initiative includes three resiliency-building programs designed to change behavioral response to poverty.
