Outreach

A hallmark of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, the founding congregation of the Sisters of Charity Health System, is their capacity to appropriately respond to emerging community needs. By expanding direct services through collaboration and innovation, the health system continues the guiding example set by the sisters.

The Sisters of Charity Health System includes numerous health and human services and education-related organizations, including Building Healthy Communities in Cleveland, Ohio; Catholic Community Connection in Cleveland; Early Childhood Resource Center for people working in childcare in all settings in Canton; Joseph's Home, which serves as the only homeless service provider in Northeast Ohio exclusively focused on medical respite care; Healthy Learners, a health care resource for children from low-income families in South Carolina; and the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families.

These organizations have earned national recognition for achievements in meeting ever-changing community needs, and share our commitment to compassion and excellence.
