Who We Are

Community Development in High-Poverty Urban Neighborhoods.

St. Jude League Community Development connects donors and volunteers with individual programs operated by the Claretian Missionaries in the United States and Canada. We support a network of unique, local programs that address poverty, violence, and hunger at the neighborhood level… Run by people who live in the communities.
