*Ozanam Orientation and The Home Visit is required for all Vincentians within one year of joining the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Child Abuse Prevention

It is a high priority of SVdP to ensure the safety of all its clients and volunteers, regardless of age. To that end, SVdP supports and is in compliance with the rules and regulations regarding the prevention and reporting of suspected and actual physical and sexual abuse of a minor child. This course covers topics which include the many resources available for those needing information about how to recognize, prevent and report suspected or actual incidences of Child Abuse. This class goes into great detail via training videos and PowerPoint presentations regarding the proper procedures and contacts in addressing this serious issue.

The Home Visit

The Home Visit is a very important part of SVdP’s work with its clients. There are specific procedures and guidelines to adhere to as a Home Visitor. In this class, Vincentians will become familiar with the proper way to conduct a Home Visit, from safety protocol to documentation. This part of the day will include an open discussion about home visits.

Ozanam Orientation

Whether you’ve been a Vincentian for two days or two decades, Ozanam Orientation offers you an opportunity to be inspired, informed, refreshed and renewed in what it means to be a member of The Society and how that membership is to be lived in the Conference and everyday life.
