Direct Aid

Offering Sustainable Assistance Since 1978

 
Purpose

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides immediate and temporary aid to people working through financial difficulty or waiting for permanent assistance from public programs. Members network with other church groups and charitable organizations to maximize assistance to the people we serve.

 
The Process

In order to receive aid, individuals in need first call our office at 979-775-2273 to speak with a Vincetian who starts a screening process. The screening process includes living in the Bryan - College Station area, having not received aid from us within the last year and fit within our assistance guidelines.

Those who qualify for assistance will be given a home visit appointment for the following week.

After the home visit, the volunteers will return to the St. Vincent de Paul office to assess the needs of the individual. 

Finally, aid is provided. Direct aid comes in many forms, but the most common are rent, utility, medical and transportation assistance, as well as anything else we can provide to help a family achieve stability.
