Mission & Ministry Impact, as a program of Daughters of Charity Ministries, Inc.,

believes that all people deserve to be treated equally, with dignity and respect.

Racism, discrimination, and hate are never acceptable.

Through our grantmaking, MMI works to bring communities together

in ways that challenge the systems keeping people oppressed.

Working together, we create a more just society.
