Justice Resources

The De Smet Jesuit were polled, requesting feedback regarding the charities that we, as a school, should support this year.  The organizations below were strongly supported by the students. 

Proceeds from Mission Week '19 will be donated to (each title is a link to more info as well):

 

Kingdom House Academy

Kingdom House believes in transformation…from the inside out.  Through holistic programs and services, we promote empowerment and growth in individuals and families. We help the economically disadvantaged achieve economic independence, self-sufficiency and a path out of poverty.

The mission of Kingdom House Academy is to help people achieve better lives. In fulfilling our mission, we teach people to fish, rather than just feeding them fish.

 

Joshua Chamberlain Society (JCS)

The Joshua Chamberlain Society's mission consists of providing long term support for Fallen and Wounded Military Heroes.

"Our unique mission is that we adopt, in the truest meaning of that word, these veterans or the family of these deceased veterans, and commit to provide support for the long term. 5, 10, 20 or more years after the serviceman or woman has suffered grievous and permanent injuries, the veteran or their family will know that the citizens in their community still honor and recognize their enormous sacrifice for our freedoms. As their injuries or death is permanent, so is the support that we provide."

 

Living Water

Living Water International exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience "living water"—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.

"In 1990, we set out to help the church in North America be the hands and feet of Jesus by serving the poorest of the poor. More than a billion people in the world live on less than a dollar a day. At least 844 million people lack access to safe drinking water."

 

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

LLS is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. Compared to other blood cancer nonprofits, LLS is the largest funder of cutting-edge research to advance cures. We have invested more than $1.2 billion in research. We are leaders in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine. This research saves lives. These revolutionary new treatments originally discovered through blood cancer research are now being tested in clinical trials for other cancers.

 

St. Matthew the Apostle Parish

“Inspired by the graces of that Sunday morning celebration with its lively Gospel music and sincere human warmth, we go to work rebuilding this church and this neighborhood.”

De Smet Jesuit and St. Matthew the Apostle’s relationship dates back decades. Their youth have attended Christmas on Campus for over 15 years; our students have raised $ and donated canned goods, candy and coats through various drives. Our students serve there during the Ascent retreat and often during Senior projects as well.
