“In Romans, St. Paul writes: “…may you abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” When Vincentians encounter Christ in our home visits and service to the needy in our communities, we are inspired to put God’s hope into action through charity and justice. Through mentoring, we will walk with individuals on their self-directed journey out of poverty. Through advocacy and collaboration, we will remove barriers and create strong, sustainable communities.

Together through Hope in Action, we will work to end poverty by creating systemic change… one person, one neighborhood, one community at a time.
