Our Mission

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, Concord-Carlisle Conference, helps families in crisis situations with expenses such as rent, utilities, food, auto repairs, transportation, moving costs, clothing, food baskets/meals, and assistance with budgeting. We also collaborate with other community organizations that offer assistance with housing, food programs, household utilities, legal assistance, and job training. No work of charity is foreign to the Society of Saint Vincent de PauI and we do our best to meet the needs of others in our local communities of Concord and Carlisle.

Our Core Values

Serving the emergency and short-term needs of our neighbors comes first, regardless of their faith, background, or personal circumstances. We are non-judgmental and seek to build a trusting, confidential, and empathetic connection with those who are struggling to make ends meet. Whenever appropriate, we meet them on a confidential basis in their home.

Our Spiritual Connection

We are a lay Catholic charitable organization affiliated with the Holy Family and Saint Irene Parishes in Concord and Carlisle Massachusetts. As Vincentians, we seek to grow in holiness by doing spiritual and temporal works of charity for those most in need in our community in the name of Jesus Christ.

You can learn more about Holy Family and Saint Irene Parishes at their website. Be sure to look at their newsletter.
