About These Programs
Catholic Charities of Dallas
Catholic Charities offers financial couching and education. Topics covered include, creating household budgets, saving money over time, reducing debt, improving credit scores, and building wealth. At the Society of St. Vincent de Paul we encourage the participants in our Mini Loan Program to enroll in courses that will help them address both their immediate need and the underlying cause.
SVdP is partnering with Catholic Charities to provide food to those in need in either as a supplement to current Conference pantries or in areas where there is not a current SVdP pantry.
