The Society is an international, Catholic volunteer organization that serves the needy of any religious background free of charge.
We were founded in Paris, France in 1833 by a compassionate college student, Frederic Ozanam, and for over 100 years our Vincentian volunteers have served the suffering in Southern California. We help the needy become self-sufficient by providing emotional and financial support, food, clothing, furniture, appliances, housing and by connecting the disadvantaged to helpful resources in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. Donations to our thrift stores make our work possible. Your financial gift or donations of household items help us help thousands of families every year.
