Mission Statement

The St. Vincent de Paul Society was established in San Francisco more than 155 years ago and was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1964. It remains one of the oldest charities, as well as one of the largest social service agencies in the City. Our mission is to offer hope and service on a direct person-to-person basis, working to break the cycles of poverty, homelessness, addiction and domestic violence. We believe in recognizing the humanity in each and every one of us, no matter who we are or how we live. Every day, we welcome hundreds of women, children and men who are alone and suffering. We know from experience that no one can change or grow until they are cared for and regain stability, so that’s where we start - by showing them kindness, unconditional respect, and the support they need to begin their journey forward.

Description

The St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco (SVDP-SF) offers 2 programs to help people overcome poverty, homelessness, addiction & domestic violence:

1) MSC-South - the largest homeless shelter in Northern CA, supporting approximately 400 people a day, every day of the year, by providing shelter, two meals a day, case management, and various other services.

2) Riley Center - our program that offers safe and confidential supportive services, community resources, and shelter to domestic violence survivors and their children.

We could not possibly accomplish all that we do without our generous and hard-working base of volunteers. Please see our current volunteer opportunities to see how you can help us advance our mission!

When volunteering as a graphic design freelancer for St. Vincent De Paul Society of San Francisco, I was able to maximize my collaborative skills with other people remotely. I also improved my ability to listen to the needs of Lisa Devitt Handley, Development Director, and Nhu-Y Truong, Development Associate, and translating their needs into creative yet consistent look and feel that adhered to and supported the organization's brand visual identity. Lisa and Nhu-Y were extremely professional, organized, supportive, and always provided constructive feedbacks to my designs. My experience working here has been very fulfilling as it’s truly been an honor being able to contribute to the great work this company is doing.┬áIf you are interested in working for a nonprofit, I would definitely recommend this organization to aspiring volunteers and for virtual work. You will surely have a great and easy experience collaborating with St. Vincent De Paul Society of San Francisco.
