Who we are

Serving those in need with compassion
and strength

An International Society of Apostolic Life
The Daughters of Charity are a community of women who devote our lives to serving the poorest and most abandoned individuals in today’s society. We minister in the everyday worlds of the poor and the marginalized.

We live a life of humility and simplicity dedicated to charity. Christ’s unwavering compassion and selfless generosity energizes our spirit and inspires our work. Strengthened by this deep spirituality, we are a joyful community that lives, prays, and works together.

Today, there are about 16,000 Daughters of Charity living and working in more than 90 countries throughout the world.
