The St. Vincent de Paul Society of Woburn takes a personal approach to our mission to assist those in need and less fortunate. Our trained volunteers meet with clients in their homes, discuss their needs and work with them to determine how we can keep help them stabilize and improve their situation.
We provide assistance with rent, utilities, school, transportation, and other life expenses.In addition we provide groceries from our food pantry and clothing from the thrift shop as listed below.
