Our Mission

Cabrini Immigrant Services of NYC (CIS-NYC) provides essential services to immigrants in the spirit of Mother Cabrini, patron saint of immigrants and founder of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Our mission is to empower immigrants, their families and their communities through education, access to essential services, civic participation and community building. We strive to work together with the immigrant community to create a more inclusive society by fostering justice, dignity and respect.

Cabrini Immigrant Services of NYC seeks to emanate the values of the Missionary Sisters in a way which is consistent with their Cabrini mission and Christian love:

“Our actions flow from values found in the life and teaching of Jesus. We strive to respond to others with compassion and to serve with excellence. We seek to communicate God’s personal love in ways that touch hearts, inspire deeper relationships with God, and foster the authentic human and spiritual development of ourselves and others. This is the Cabrinian mission.”
