FOUNDATION FOR JUSTICE
We consider ourselves a substitute family whose purpose is to protect children, and reduce the number of those who are socially displaced and abused. We do this in collaboration with other like-minded agencies by:

• providing places of safety with developmental and remedial opportunities
• empowering family
• creating awareness of social injustices against children


A profound appreciation for the gift of faith is at the heart of the Holy Faith Congregation. Believing that this calls for different expressions at different times, and that the primary end of all ministry is the Reign of God, the Members of Credo join the Sisters in response to their Congregational call to live ‘a faith that does justice’ in their prayer, their lives and their ministry.
