"Because our founder showed particular concerns for justice toward women, we commit ourselves to be involved in ministries and action which affect the contemporary situation of women in the church and in society." (Constitution 22)
Continuing in that spirit, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace sponsor these ministries to women and families:
Kenmare Alternate High School for Women, An Education for a Lifetime - Kenmare is a fully accredited alternative high school providing women aged 17-35 who dropped out of the public or private school system with a second chance to earn a diploma.

St. Joseph’s Home, An Oasis from a Life of Poverty and Despair - St. Joseph’s provides a homeless woman and her child(ren) with 18 months of supportive, communal living as she works to improve her life and attain permanent, affordable housing.
St. Mary’s Residence, A Place to Call Home - St. Mary’s offers safe, affordable housing for single working women with limited incomes.
Women at the Table is an association of persons dedicated to achieving peace through justice by the inclusion of women as full participants in decision making, and rediscovering the legacy of Mother Clare (Margaret Anna Cusack) and restoring her just dignity as a woman ahead of her time.
