Why We Do What We Do

As a ministry of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, our mission is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Word. We believe in a community where the poor and marginalized, especially women, children, and seniors, are empowered to attain quality of life. We do this by holding true to our values of:


We engage in the work of social justice as a living expression of the hands of Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Word


The work of justice is complex and requires shared resources, common goals, and cross-sector cooperation


We work with determination and care with the resources, relationships, and vision that are entrusted to our hands


We do not presume to be the voice of those we serve. Rather, we want to hear their voice, engage them in developing solutions, and amplify their voice in leading change from within their own communities


Complex problems require bold, intelligent, thoughtful solutions. We operate with creativity, in pursuit of long-term outcomes, and fund organizations that share this value


We prioritize listening, sharing, and communicating as we build all of our work on authentic relationship – seeing and calling out the character of Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Word, in each person we meet
