Started in 1999, the Poverty Justice Fund has partnered with close to 100 organizations to assist the Sisters of Providence in their efforts to promote social justice and the integrity of Earth.

There are many direct service organizations that help people, but this fund is aimed at systemic changes that promote human dignity and the integrity of all creation.

The fund allows us to partner with others who are doing good work in an effort to create a more just and sustainable future.

In the words of our foundress, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, “We are not called upon to do all the good work that is possible, but only that which we can do.”

Those interested in applying are encouraged to log on to Sisters of Providence website. Applications for the 2014-15 fiscal year are due June 1, 2014. Those applying will be directed to an application by accessing the above webpage.
