Welcome to the Fort Worth District Council of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers assistance to those who have fallen upon times of hardship and personal crisis. We assist through home visits with two people to individuals and families and through direct assistance at food pantries and merchandise stores to individuals and families who lack basic necessities such as food, utility and rent payments.

Micro Loan Program (MLP) is for individuals who have high interest payday or title loans. It provides collateral in shared and secured accounts, so that regional banks and credit unions can provide loans at low interest for prospective borrowers.

MLP offers a short and long-term approach towards climbing out of the debt cycle.
• Immediately relieve the stress on individuals and/or families.
• Encourage savings and the growth of a safety net for emergencies.
• Instill financial coaching for those who desire coaching on the use and budgeting of money.

If you would like to contribute to our Micro Loan Program or if you feel this program could help you, please see more information by selecting MLP under Fundraising/Donations in the menu at the top of this page.

The role of the Vincentian is not only to provide financial assistance but to be loving, supportive, and compassionate. It is through loving those in need that we meet Christ. The home visit, immediate access to food pantries and merchandise stores, and the capability for providing very timely assistance (often assistance is provided 'on the spot') is what separates the Society from other social agencies.
