My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for FRANCISCAN MISSION SERVICE OF NORTH AMERICA, Washington, DC, USA
What strikes me about Franciscan Mission Service (FMS) is the deep commitment by every person affiliated with the organization to living the mission as vibrantly as possible. Currently, 7 missioners serve in Bolivia, Guatemala, and Jamaica. They work as teachers, in orphanages, in prisons, in homes for the elderly, and with girls who have survived sexual abuse. They are changing lives and simultaneously engaging in a transformational experience themselves by entering into relationship with those in their host communities and learning from their wisdom. In addition, 5 volunteers serve as members of DC Service Corps, working at local nonprofits in Washington, DC. They too are engaging in vital service while growing as servant leaders. As a staff member, I am inspired daily by our remarkable missioners and volunteers. I am equally impressed by our Board of Directors which generously supports this mission from a wide array of backgrounds and expertise. The FMS family is vibrant, connected, and growing. We welcome more members into it!
