Description

Mission Statement: St. Vincent de Paul Society (Dayton District Council)
"The Dayton District Council of St. Vincent de Paul, growing in spirituality and friendship, provides Christ-inspired person-to-person support in an empowering effort to improve the lives of those in personal, spiritual, or material need."

At UD, some ways we as students fulfill this statement are by serving meals to clients, bagging donations that clients will receive bi-weekly, participating and volunteering at the Dayton District Council events (ex. the annual spring 5K), and coordinating on-campus events for students (fleece blanket-making, canned-good drives, etc.).

Additionally, our conference will conduct home visits alongside other St. Vincent de Paul conferences in the Dayton area. A home visit is an opportunity to interact with Daytonians in need of assistance by visiting them in their homes. The purpose of the home visit is to intentionally interact with those we serve, in order to establish more lasting relationships centered in Christ. It will help the participating conferences to better evaluate the needs of our neighbors in order to more accurately respond with charity.
