Predatory Loan Conversion Program
As predatory loans continue to plague Central Texans, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and partners RBCFU are helping our neighbors escape crushing debt by converting high-interest loans into loans with an incredibly low 2.25% APR. For more information on participating in PLCP, please contact our Board Treasurer Matt.
Vehicle Liability Form
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul – Diocesan Council of Austin recognizes the need and desire for some Vincentians to drive our friends in need/clients in personally owned and operated vehicles. By registering with the Council office, Vincentian volunteers can be official drivers and covered by the Council’s liability insurance policy. We are grateful and excited to be able to offer this option to our Central Texas Vincentians.
Vincentians who drive but have not registered with our office are in willful violation of the general policy allowing for volunteers to drive friends in need. Please note: registration PRIOR to driving a client is required to be covered by the Council’s liability insurance policy. You must submit a fully completed form prior to driving a friend in need.
