Take a leap of faith and believe…

Last year, over 190,000 neighbors in need turned to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Detroit for help because circumstances seemed impossible to overcome. They came needing comfort, food, clothing, housing, and utility assistance. The thing they needed most was hope. They needed to see the possible of a better future. We all do.

Join us at Top Hat Ball on Friday, October 2, 2020.

Experience the extraordinary, expect the unexpected, and see how hope changes everything.

About the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Detroit

Bringing people of all faiths together, St. Vincent de Paul Detroit (SVdPD) strives to build a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need, empowering them at critical moments in their journeys, to help lift them from poverty towards a more stable path.

For over 135 years, SVdPD has heard and responded to the cries of Southeast Michigan’s most vulnerable, regardless of faith, race, ethnic or social background, health or gender. All are welcome at our door. We provide urgent material needs, health and wellness programs, hot meals, food, utility assistance, and a pathway out of poverty through our Like Skills programs – Journey to Housing and our Justice Initiative. We also offer free summer camp experiences for youth through Camp Ozanam. No act of charity is unknown to St. Vincent de Paul Detroit.

Assistance is provided through a local network of Vincentian volunteers who make in-home visits. These visits differentiate SVdPD from similar organizations and are at the core of what we do. With compassion, empathy, respect, and gratitude, our Vincentians nurture a one-on-one relationship to better understand and satisfy the spiritual, emotional and material needs of those we serve.

This our faith, every faith, at its best!

Last year, through the incredible generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals, we were able to feed over 44,538, help 6,782 households keep their heat and lights on, and our Vincentians made 44,000 home visits. Overall, we helped 190,000 of our neighbors in need.

Your commitment to supporting the Top Hat Ball ensures people who need us the most, will continue to get the help they deserve.

“I would like to embrace the whole world in a network of charity.” – Frédéric Ozanam
