Assisting Vulnerable Families is also a priority issue for us.
Vulnerable families are often considered to be low income, single parent families who lack access to affordable housing, quality schools and good neighborhoods. They also lack medical insurance and other basic necessities.
Two of our Sisters are Medical Directors and practitioners at two of the CHRISTUS Health clinics. Another Sisters volunteers in the CHRISTUS mobile clinic that goes into neighborhoods to provide free medical care in the Houston Area.
We also partner with organizations who build affordable housing in a variety of neighborhoods, organizations that provide family counseling, parenting skills, shelters for abused women and children; and after school programs for youth at risk.
