The St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn has been serving the local community since 1924. We are a charity offering a ‘hand up’ to people in need, regardless of their creed, ethnic or social background, health, gender or political opinion. We do this by respecting peoples' dignity, sharing our hope and by encouraging people to take control of their own destiny. We work to shape a more just and compassionate society. We help people in a large geographic area surrounding the ACT - to Lake Cargelligo in the west, across the Snowy Mountains to Tumut, down to Eden, up to Batemans Bay and inland to Crookwell. The Society’s services are the result of the combined effort of our members, volunteers and employees.
The Society attempts to help as many struggling and disadvantaged people as possible. To do this, we require money and goods. Whilst we receive government funding for some of our programs, we also rely heavily on the generosity of the community through our appeals, fundraising events and connections to provide the extra funding.
