VincentCare was established by the St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria in 2003 to accept responsibility for services for disadvantaged and vulnerable people, including those who are homeless, mentally and physically disabled, aged, and suffering from forms of substance abuse.
VincentCare Community Housing Ltd was established by VincentCare in 2009 to work with VincentCare in providing housing services in association with VincentCare.
VincentCare works within the mission of the St Vincent de Paul Society providing an extensive range of structured social services to disadvantaged people, often in partnership with government programs.
VincentCare’s responsibility is to provide services and also to advocate for these vulnerable and disadvantaged people, respect their dignity and rights and understand their needs, so as to provide them with support and encouragement and promote self-dependence. Volunteers and conference members assist the staff in the delivery of services and programs where appropriate.
VincentCare is committed to the principles of social justice and aim to ensure that every individual is treated with dignity and respect regardless of their ability, cultural background, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation or religion.
