At the core of the Poor Handmaids' mission is a commitment to upholding social justice and providing compassionate care for the sick and underprivileged. With a focus on healing harm from systemic injustices such as racism, poverty, and violence, the Poor Handmaids actively engage in creating a more just and compassionate society where every individual's inherent worth is acknowledged and respected.

Since their arrival in the United States in 1868, the Poor Handmaids have been instrumental in providing education, healthcare, childcare, and care for the elderly to communities in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and beyond. With ministries spanning diverse areas such as education, healthcare, and social services, the Poor Handmaids continue to serve those who are economically disadvantaged with love and compassion.

Rooted in a deep faith and commitment to living gospel values, the Poor Handmaids embrace life's adventure with joy and love, ready to take bold action and risk for the greater good. Guided by the Holy Spirit and their collective internal wisdom, the Poor Handmaids recognize and value each individual's gifts, fostering a spirit of collaboration and partnership in their mission of service.

As they journey together, the Poor Handmaids embrace the gift of their international congregation and the call to intercultural living, honoring their connection to the Associate Community and the Fiat Spiritus Community. Through their commitment to sustainability, care for the environment, and advocacy for social justice, the Poor Handmaids continue to make a profound difference in the world, one act of compassion at a time.
