For more than 30 years, the Foundation has been supporting and promoting the programs of the Sisters’ of St. Joseph in providing services to immigrants and refugees, developing women leaders through social justice and works of service, providing health care to those without access, and nurturing spiritual seekers.  Today their programs reach more than 15,000 annually, many of whom live on the margins of society, and who have few other resources to turn to for help.

Do you have a special area of expertise that might help us? Do you have a few hours a day, week or month you would like to share? We have a variety of volunteer opportunities to fit your schedule. We are especially interested in people with experience in a nonprofit setting.  If you have a few hours per month, please consider volunteering with us – we would love you to join this movement.
