The Daniel Society
The Daniel Society is a organization that confronts poverty because all lives have value, purpose and potential. They design smart, compassionate and sustainable poverty reduction initiatives in the United States and globally. They give people a "lift" by targeted resources that empower them to live a life of dignity that they themselves chart. The initiatives are culturally competent and designed in collaboration with those they serve. They mobilize highly skilled volunteers to heal the sick, feed and clothe refugees, welcome the immigrant, restore prisoners and build community leaders.
The Daniel Society's mission is to reduce poverty and confront injustice by smart, compassionate and sustainable initiatives that empower people to hope again. They restore dignity, purpose and hope to families in need worldwide.
CENTER FOR GLOBAL INITIATIVES:
The Daniel Society's Center for Global Initiatives confronts global poverty through the Basic Needs Initiative and Compassion-In-Action Initiative. They partner with organizations on the ground to provide food, clean water and clothes to poor and refugee families in transition. They also educate, counsel and restore hope to women, children and incarcerated individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa.
CENTER FOR LAW & JUSTICE:
The Daniel Society's Center for Law & Justice, a separate legal entity, confronts poverty through the neighborhood-based initiatives that meet high priority needs of low-income communities. They provide legal assistance to indigent immigrants in New York City. They also give communities a voice by engaging residents in public policy forums and other civic engagement projects. They work with refugees, immigrant communities, and incarcerated young adults returning to high-crime neighborhoods.See more
