Training for SVDP Councils and Conferences

Supporting Vincentian Councils: Strengthening Disaster Response

At the heart of our commitment lies the unwavering support of Vincentian Councils and Isolated Conferences across the United States and American Territories. Through the Disaster Services Corporation (DSC), we extend vital assistance to our Councils affected by both manmade and natural disasters, ensuring they have the tools to effectively navigate these challenging times.

Comprehensive Support in Action

Our support encompasses both logistical assistance and the crucial provision of Rapid Response and Long Term Recovery Grants. By facilitating these resources, we empower our Councils to mount swift and sustainable disaster response efforts, regardless of the circumstances they face.

Uniting for Effective Disaster Management

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul operates across eight distinct Regions, each represented by a dedicated Regional Disaster Representative. These representatives form an integral part of the National Disaster Committee, facilitating seamless communication between regions and the Disaster Services Corporation. In times of need, these Disaster Representatives collaborate closely with DSC to secure grants and programs that directly aid recovery efforts within Councils.
