Services:
  The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a non-sectarian organization with no direct funding or organizational control by the Catholic Church, is one of the oldest charitable organizations in the world, founded in 1833 in France by seven students. Nationally, as well as internationally, the Society is a voice for those less fortunate, with a presence in over 135 countries. The Society’s strength is based on its personal contact with people in need; however, the Society does not ignore that there are many systemic causes that affect these individuals. While assistance is usually material and emergency in nature, the Society supports and encourages clients to become personally empowered toward self-sufficiency. Responding to local needs and conditions, members of the Society seek to apply the most effective solutions to the needs of those less fortunate.    The Society’s worldwide mission is to help the needy in countless ways, primarily through one-on-one contact of volunteers with children, families, and the homeless. They accomplish this mission through parish- and community-based groups called Conferences and through special projects conducted at the local council levels. Their members, called Vincentians, continually strive to promote the dignity of the people they serve while helping alleviate their suffering and distress and working to help correct conditions that cause these problems. Today, more than 4,745 active Conferences operate in the U.S., with about 58,000 active members.

The Diocesan Council does not operate programs directly but supports the activities of conferences in the 9 county area of Southwestern Wisconsin

Whether it be through job loss, loss of a spouse whowas the primary source of income, extreme medical expenses or other crises theyface, an increasing number of people need the additional financial assistancethat goes beyond what government, private and religious institutions canprovide them.  Because of plant closings,permanent and temporary lay-offs, there are an increasing number of people whofind themselves poverty stricken.  Manyof them are hardworking people who are chronically under-employed or insubsistence level hourly work that cannot sustain an individual, let alone afamily. Many are elderly who cannot survive on government pensions, making themunable to provide for three staple items: shelter, food, and utilities. Working with social service agencies, churches, andprivate referrals, – all of which are verified for the legitimacy of the need –The Time Is Now helps in any number of circumstances where there is no otherhope.  Whether it is because all otherresources, such as heating assistance, have been exhausted or due to federaland state cutbacks, The Time Is Now is there to help.

The Time Is Now’s continuing goal is tomake sure every cent donated is utilized to provide goods and services, such asfood, clothing, utilities, toiletries, automobile assistance, and shelterassistance to help the extremely poverty-stricken children, senior citizens,disabled, and families live more comfortably, improve their quality of life,and remove their pain and suffering.
