Vincentian Service Corps West

Goal of Program

Let's go make a Difference! The mission of Vincentian Service Corps West 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 the most marginalized in society and seeing God in those we serve while helping people help themselves. A year of service makes a lifetime of difference!
