Volunteer at a Local Conference

SVDP Rhode Island comprises a statewide Council, five districts, and 24 parish-based conferences. Conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul are composed of volunteers who serve those in need in their local communities.  Most of our conferences offer the range of basic needs assistance from rent and security deposits to assistance with medical and utility bills. Some offer food pantries or meal sites, and others provide holiday assistance.
