It all starts with a home visit.


Society of Saint Vincent de Paul promotes the dignity of the person and supports clients in their efforts of self-sufficiency. The voucher system is a particularly great example of this.

A member of SSVP, a "Vincentian," will visit a client at their home to establish a relationship and discuss any needs he or she may have. Where possible and when appropriate, a voucher is issued for goods in kind. For example, if a client needs a winter coat, they are issued a voucher for Society Shoppe, which is accepted tender at Society Shoppe stores.

This system promotes a sense of control despite difficult circumstances and provides a pleasant shopping experience for the client.
