What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our world is visibly broken and spiritually starved. At every turn we seem to find divisiveness and marginalized ... physically and spiritually. As Salvatorians our goal is to "Make Jesus Known and Loved through ALL ways and Means"

This means we don't run huge institution but we are present where ever the Savior calls us to be... encountering those we serve on the streets, in the pews, in the fields, in the classrooms, at the borders, in hospitals, nursing homes and more. WE encounter people one by one, not telling them what to do or how to act, but by showing them through our own actions what the Love of God means. We aim to extend the Lord's hand as we lead by example jumping in to help - to make a difference in those little forgotten corners of the world and in own back yards.
