Our current needs

Offering hope

Women and children in the Wayanad District of India participate in programs that assist them in overcoming difficult life situations and help them access governmental services.

Shine your light

Many lives are brightened as hope takes root through the Sisters’ empowerment program. The Sisters and staff address existing challenges through education, empowerment, guidance, a listening ear, and support.

Faces of Hope

Faces of hope. We see them every day at Doors to Hope, our ministry for women and immigrant families. Each one has a unique story. The common element is the desire and determination to make a better life for themselves and their families.

Educating girls

In Musunuru, India, Sisters provide a home for girls who are attending school. This supportive environment helps to prepare them for a bright future.

Educating a growing student population

Nazareth Academy in Mokama, India is flourishing and provides a quality education to children in the state of Bihar.

Enriching lives

Children with special needs participate in programs that maximize their abilities so they can reach their full potential.

Private funds maintain operating costs so 100% of donations go straight to SCN missions.

Serving others
