SOAR! Grant project review

Grants for Religious

SOAR! was created to assist congregations of Catholic religious women and men in the United States with the care of their elderly and infirm members. SOAR!, through the generosity of its donors, is able to fulfill its mission by providing grants to religious orders of Sisters, Brothers and Priests to help meet practical needs. Grants are used by the congregations to ensure the safety of their elderly members so they can remain at home and participate in their respective communities.
