The Voice of the Poor is the advocacy arm of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. With members representing every section and demographics of the nation, we identify those issues that are critical to those living in poverty and need and help bring attention to them so communities and our elected representatives can help develop strategies and tactics that will provide the most effective and efficient means to reduce or eliminate poverty.
St. Vincent de Paul Orlando is concerned not only with alleviating need but also with identifying those structures, societal and legislative, that cause and perpetuate poverty. This mission manifests itself in the Society’s admonition to “End Poverty through Systemic Change.”

"Rarely is any good done without difficulty; the devil is too subtle and the world too corrupt not to attempt to nip such a good work in the bud."
