Sister Helen grew up on a ranch in western Nebraska. She met the Sisters of Providence while attending Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.

She said her life was profoundly influenced by the destruction caused by Hurricane’s Rita and Katrina.

In her current ministry, officials help distribute grants for the benefit of low income families in the southern United States.
