SVDP Uplift Program: Helping Clients Get Back on their Feet

The St. Vincent de Paul Uplift program is much more than just assistance. It also helps a client move through a difficult phase of his or her life through mentoring, training and financial support, enabling them to stabilize their personal situation.

The ultimate goal of the Uplift program is to help people move away from the need for repeated assistance, so that they will become self-sufficient and independent. 

As one Vincentian put it, “Vincentians shouldn’t do for a client what the client can do for themselves, both in financial terms and in other ways.”

It takes a tremendous financial and personal commitment on the part of everyone involved, due to the financial assistance and mentoring involved over an extended period of time.
