Vincentian Service Corps West
Goal of Program
Lets go make a Difference! The mission of the Vincentian Service Corps is to provide opportunities for women and men who want to serve those in poverty, live in community with other VSC members, and experience a simple lifestyle. While working directly with the poor, VSC members are called to deepen their faith, grow in charity, work for justice, celebrate life and develop close bonds. Service is geared to helping people help themselves. A year of service makes a lifetime of difference!
