A bit about us:

Réseau Compassion Network is the owner and sponsor of 15 Catholic social and health service organizations founded by Catholic sisters in Manitoba. In 2000 the sister’s transferred ownership of these organizations to a lay-organization that committed to continuing their legacy of charitable works and strive to meet the needs of under-served populations in our province. Today Réseau Compassion Network concentrates its efforts on supporting the compassionate culture of service within the Network, helping their organizations grow in excellence and to realize their strategic priorities while also identifying and meeting new community needs through a lens of collaboration and reconciliation.
