Holy Family of Irving SVdP along with Catholic Charities of Dallas sponsored this free food truck for the poor today at HFN. More than 30 families benefited.
My son and I were recently blessed to get an apartment of our own since the hurricane. We are in Denton now, (from Houston area), and have NO furniture at ALL. I see the Denton location is permanently closed. My Uncle volunteered delivering furniture for over 20 years in St. Louis and is the one who suggested reaching out. I'm 50 years old, disabled (fixed income) with a 9 year-old son. Trying to furnish a 2 bedroom from ground zero. Any advice/suggestions are welcome. 🙏
Thank you for all you do! Gracias por todo lo que ayudan a la comunidad!
Is it possible to PM this group???
Hello - I stumbled upon the Plano TX thrift store location and asked to be added to the email list but have never rec'd anything. Is there a link where I can sign up again? Thank you and thank you for the good work you do for so many people.

Provides short-term emergency financial assistance, as well as education, advocacy and referrals to empower our neighbors in need to reach self-sufficiency

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Diocesan Council of Dallas currently operates 37 parish-based groups referred to as “conferences” with 1,000 volunteers known as “Vincentians” who work in teams of two to provide person-to-person assistance while also enriching their own lives through service and prayer. SVdP client assistance is tailored to each client’s needs and may include food, clothing, furniture, rent, utility, transportation, medical, emotional and spiritual support.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Diocesan North Texas (SVdP) is a Catholic nonprofit organization that provides temporary assistance, as well as educational, advocacy and referral support to empower our friends and neighbors in 9 counties of North Texas. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul North Texas currently operates 38 parish-based groups referred to as “Conferences” with over 800 volunteers known as “Vincentians” who work in teams of two to provide person-to-person assistance while also enriching their own lives spiritually. SVdP assistance is tailored to meet the needs of our friends and neighbors and may include food, clothing, furniture, rent, utility, transportation, medical, emotional and spiritual support. Our systemic change programs such as StudyTime and our Mini Loan Program offer life altering solutions to lead those we serve to a path of self sufficiency.

Mission: Inspired by Gospel Values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Catholic lay organization that leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and its patron, St. Vincent de Paul. As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gathering and adherence to a basic Rule. Organized locally, Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because in them Vincentians see the fact of Christ.

At SVdP, we're still remembering our warm, fuzzy feelings from the holidays...

Irving's SVdP Holy Family of Nazareth Conference had 26 families, with 90 children join us for this year's Angel tree project. In addition to gifts from their wish list, each family received a bag of fresh food, in addition to some non-perishable staples like flour, canned soup and pasta. The conference also was lucky to have a store of donated coats and jackets to hand out to those who needed one as well!

The families asked to not be photographed during the event, but were very excited about the opportunity to be a part of the program next year.
"This is a temporary situation for us, and as soon as we get back on our feet, we will definitely give to your organization in the future!" - anonymous gift recipient

It was a blessed holiday season! What can we do next in 2020 to make this year even better!?

We were pleased to welcome Nick, Chester and John to our office to give them a tour. :)

Celebrating 174 years of service in the USA...

On this day in 1845, the first official meeting of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was held in the United States.

The meeting was held in St. Louis, Mo. at the Old Cathedral where the first Conference in the U.S. was established by Fr. Ambrose Heim. Fr. Heim was known by the people of St. Louis for his extraordinary zeal and ministry with the poor.

Dr. Moses Linton, a prominent physician and convert to Catholicism, was elected president of the Conference. Bryan Mullanphy, widely known for his philanthropy, served as vice-president.

St. Vincent de Paul Young Adults USA

Here's your opportunity to help support young adults in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul!

HAPPY ST. VINCENT DE PAUL FEAST DAY!

Help us fund the Blessed Frederic Ozanam Mosaic that will be installed within the Vincentian Chapel, featuring St. Vincent and St. Louise de Marillac statues, as well as one dedicated to the Miraculous Medal at The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC.

“... accomplish by love, what justice alone cannot do.”

— Blessed Frédéric Ozanam

Young Adult Vincentians feel connected to Blessed Frederic in the fact that he was a young adult when he started the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. This is how we are trying to help support the Mosaic Campaign. Our goal is to be able to make a $1000 contribution to helping fund the Blessed Frederic Ozanam Mosaic at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, that will be being dedicated on January 26, 2020 in Washington, DC.

SVdP North Texas is working to #StopTheDebtTrap through our Mini Loan Program. Since its beginning in January 2015, MLP has changed hundreds of lives by refinancing predatory payday and auto title loans for our neighbors in need. Through ongoing support and financial coaching, MLP helps participants escape the debt trap and find financial freedom.

By the numbers:

344%: AVERAGE APR of predatory loans that MLP replaces!

281: Number of low-interest, 1-year loans granted by SVdP at APR of 3%

83%: Payments made on time by program participants

60: Savings accounts opened (participants paid off debt and began saving!)

138: Number of cars saved from repossession

$5,094.85: The AVERAGE amount saved in avoided predatory fees and exorbitant interest by an MLP participant.

Giving people the chance to escape poverty. This is #WhyWeGive on #NTxGivingDay.

So excited for them!

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Red. They have owned their home for over 30 years and had never experienced a flood. In September of 2018, their home was flooded by 2.5 feet of water. As the water rose, they were unable to open either door from the current or pressure of the water. A group of neighbors assisted them to safety. Mrs. Red recalls, “Never having felt so scared in my entire life”.

The couple lives on a fixed income and one is disabled. They had insurance but no flood coverage. The flood damage was extensive and they were unable to afford repairs. They felt hopeless.

We collaborated with United Way of Tarrant County and
Society of St. Vincent de Paul North Texas to have the home repaired. The Red’s are “grateful to be able to live in more than one room after many months”. We are grateful to have been a part of restoring their home to a safe and secure environment once again. The work has been satisfying but nothing compared to the priceless smiles of this sweet couple.

Federal rules to protect payday loan applicants may be stopped

Many borrowers take out payday or auto title loans because of unexpected expenses: a major car repair, hospital bill or sudden job loss. Such costs make it difficult to cover regular expenses like rent or utilities. This news story (below) came out yesterday and helps to explain this financial blight on our communities. If you'd like to help us fight this battle, visit us at www.svdpdallas.org/donate

Payday loans are advertised as a "quick fix", but often trap vulnerable borrowers into unmanageable payments with alarming interest rates. What to do when a "quick fix" traps you in months of overwhelming debt? Call us at 469-607-0909 to learn about our mini-loan program.
