Background Statement
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul was founded in 1833 by Frederick Ozanam along with a group of students who started out to visit the poor of Paris in their homes, taking them bread and clothes, their friendship and their concern. This small group took as their patron St. Vincent de Paul who alerted the world to social problems. Similar groups began in Paris, then in the rest of France, and eventually spread throughout the world with the object of visiting those in need.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
There was a point in my life where I needed financial and moral assistance. I was lucky enough to have family and friends to rely on, not everyone is that lucky. Now it is my turn to help others and the St. Vincent de Paul Society is the perfect fit for me. As President of the St. Vincent de Paul Conference I started attending community meetings in order to see how we can together help the people of Manatee County. We are now working with other organizations helping each other and our respective clients.
 
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is an all volunteer organization that relies on donations to help those in need. There is such a tremendous need in Manatee County that we had to look for financial assistance beyond just our Parish, Ss. Peter and Paul the Apostles in Bradenton, FL. Thus we started writing grants and became aware of the Giving Challenge. The Giving Challenge gave us a tremendous boost last year to help more people than we ever had before. 
 We are always looking for more people to help in our mission. We need someone to attend some of these community meetings, help develop a Web Site and someone to be in charge of publicity to keep us in the public eye.
I also volunteer with Stillpoint House of Prayer, The Manatee Players Theatre, and co-chair the Solve Rummage sale and still go back to Chicago to work the Lake County Catholic Charities Christmas Gift Program. But, St. Vincent de Paul is my number 1 project and I have also become the St. Vincent De Paul Disaster representative for Manatee and Sarasota Counties, so this means I also attend the local COAD and VOAD meetings besides going to conferences and classes on Disaster Awareness and preparedness. 
PLEASE HELP US TO CONTINUE HELPING OTHERS.

Financials Comments
Financial Comments by Organization This is the first time that we have gone into 6 brackets for money received. We received $118,894 and gave out over $120,000 to people in financial emergencies. The need keeps growing in Manatee County for people who need financial assistance. Most of our assistance is for utilities to be put back on or keep them on. We are also helping those who desire to further their education so they can be self reliant.
