United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Explore UN's Sustainable Development Goals, corporate contributions, and progress towards global well-being.

In 2015, the United Nations member states adopted the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). These 17 goals were adopted by participating governments in an effort to work towards ending poverty, protecting the environment, and bettering the lives of people everywhere. Many corporations are using these goals in order to conduct their businesses in a manner that improves the lives of the people in areas where they are located. To date, however, progress on the goals is falling far short of being achieved by 2030.

Serving where needed since 1874

Founded in Poland in 1855, the Felician Sisters are a congregation of women religious inspired by the spiritual ideals of their foundress, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, and Saints Francis of Assisi, Clare of Assisi and Felix of Cantalice. Arriving in North America in 1874 following Blessed Mary Angela’s directive “to serve where needed,” they helped to weave the social service system. Today, the Felician Sisters founded, sponsor or support through the presence of our sisters, more than 40 ministries – all continuing to evolve to meet the needs of the people they serve.
