Caring

Accompanying those in need on Life’s Journey

Cabrini Caring means accompanying people of all walks of life on their journeys, having an active presence in people’s lives and sharing the love of God with all. MSC ministries of Caring encompass a wide variety of institutions and services, including a retreat center and homes for troubled youth, programs and services for recent immigrants, adult care facilities, national and overseas mission programs and shrines.

Cabrini Caring focuses on:

  • Addressing the causes and effects of spiritual and material poverty, and of injustice and inequality for groups most at risk today, including immigrants, women, children, and elders
  • Putting into action the social teachings of the Church for the marginalized and excluded of society, and empowering people at all levels to do the same
  • National and international outreach programs for solidarity with the poor and marginalized
  • Promoting by various means a culture of life, rather than a culture of death and violence
  • Evangelization that promotes spirituality and service to our neighbors

The office is accredited by the Bureau of Immigration Appeals to provide immigration legal services and thus provides free family based immigration and citizenship services. Additionally, the office provides case management, advocacy, and educational workshops surrounding issues of immigrant access to higher education, health care, rights in the public school system, and immigration law. CIS has a strong community organizing component and works with community members, parishes, national and local organizations, and elected officials to fight for social justice issues that affect the immigration community, most notably just and humane immigration reform.

The Missionary Sisters have been serving at St. Philip’s Mission in the lowveld region of Swaziland since 1971.This project provides nutritional supplementation of fresh fruits and vegetables for approximately 1200+ HIV/AIDS patients in the area, in addition to providing fresh produce for the children housed at the hostel. In recent years, efforts have been made to respond to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Swaziland by expanding their services to include:

Cabrini Hostel – established to care for the high rate of children orphaned by AIDS. Many of the children are compromised by malnutrition and chronic conditions such as TB and kidneydisease.

Agriculture – In 2005, Cabrini Ministries established an agricultural project. This project provides nutritional supplementation of fresh fruits and vegetables for approximately 1200+ HIV/AIDS patients in the area, in addition to providing fresh produce for the children housed at the hostel.

Home Based Care – Started with a grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation, the Home Based Care program focuses on caring for the sick and dying; testing for HIV; helping people begin treatment and transporting people to the hospital to receive treatment.

Education – The educational program began over fifteen years ago when it was discovered that many children in the homesteads were not in school and their families could not afford to send them. With the assistance of the Swiss Solon Foundation, once the children are on the foundation grant, their education is guaranteed through 7th grade if they pass. This increases their chances for individualized growth and better employment opportunities.
