I appreciate how the Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help stand with those facing poverty in all its forms and also work to change the systems that cause individuals, families, and whole generations of people to be lost in a cycle of poverty that can seem impossible to escape. The sisters understand that environmental climate issues impact the poor more significantly than those who have access to more resources. The sisters seek to provide daily needs for those in crisis as well as look to bring about change in all aspects of society that contribute to poverty. Above all, the sisters provide hope.
