Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, an international Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together and grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those who are needy and suffering, in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam and patron, St Vincent de Paul.

Members of the St. William Conference of the Society, in groups of two, visit those in need in their homes and provide tangible assistance with food, grocery certificates, rental and utility payments, gas cards and other financial help and vouchers for free clothing, furniture and other household items from the St. Vincent de Paul store located at S30 W24836 Sunset Drive in Waukesha. Most importantly, members provide those they visit encouragement, advice and friendship.

The Conference operates the St. William Food Pantry replenished by the generous monthly food contributions from St. William parish members, accepts monetary contributions through the Poor Boxes in church and made directly to the Conference and sponsors the annual Walk for the Poor each September.

The Conference always welcomes new members in its mission of humble charity, compassion and friendship to the poor. The telephone number to volunteer or for assistance is 262-547-2763 ext 204.
