OUR IMPACT 2019/20

THE YEAR BY THE NUMBERS

Over the past year, the combined efforts of St Vincent de Paul Society NSW members, volunteers, staff, donors and supporters have made an impact on tens of thousands of lives. Together, we have helped people to find homes, overcome addiction, escape domestic violence, put food on the table, keep their electricity connected, and stay strong through the bushfires, drought and coronavirus.
