Just as you are involved in helping your neighbors, the Sisters of Providence and Providence Associates strive to help individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their well-being, helping people develop skills and abilities to use their own resources and those of the community to resolve problems.
In addition to Sisters of Providence sponsored ministries, individual sisters and Providence Associates also serve in social service and justice ministries. They do important work, including:
- advocating for just systems
- visiting those in prison
- working with the homeless, providing both material and spiritual resources
- addressing needs of immigrants
- in street and neighborhood outreach programs
- homecare outreach for persons who are elderly and counselors
