Confidentiality is Essential to Helping People.
People seek help from SVdP when they have special needs which may range from fairly simple to painfully difficult.
The need for service is determined and help is given through sharing factual and often very personal information.
Information shared with SVdP, in its very nature, involves some information that in other settings
(e.g., doctor’s office, psychiatrist’s office, hospital, lawyer etc.) would be considered extremely private.
We respect the dignity of each person we assist and under no circumstances should names or details be shared.
Central to the helping process is SVdP’s commitment to keep all personal information private and confidential.
“Be it resolved that in the implementation of its mission, “In the Spirit of Love and Justice,
SVdP provides person to person services of time, talent and resources to help our neighbors in need,’
SVdP actively seeks to provide services to individuals and recruit volunteers without regard to race, creed, color, gender,
sexual orientation, disability, marital status, veteran status, national origin, age or physical handicap.
Furthermore, SVdP serves, accepts as members or volunteers and hires those with a criminal justice status.”
