Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, IN are committed to creating positive change in the world. We can not do this alone. We invite volunteers to help us.
Local ministries include:
Providence Health Care provides health services to the elderly.

St. Ann Clinic provides medical care and referrals, free of charge, to low-income individuals and families who live at 125 percent of the national poverty level and do not have a private physician or have medical insurance.
White Violet Center for Eco-Justice focuses on the areas of organic agriculture, eco-justice education, and social advocacy.
