The DePaul Community Service Association (DCSA) seeks to promote the dignity of all by following the example of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac. The function of DCSA is twofold:
- To provide meaningful volunteer opportunities to DePaul students who serve our community partners in sustained, mutually beneficial relationships
- To promote reflection and social justice rooted in Vincentian values.
DCSA Coordinators and Senior Teamers dedicate themselves to spiritual growth, service, justice and community building through their work in DCSA and their commitment to the spirit of Vincentians In Action (VIA) – our larger community, the way we reflect on our efforts to fight injustice with systemic change, the lens through which we see the world, and our Vincentian way of life.
