The joy of being associated with women dedicated to the mission of Christ in the family of
St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac may be yours as a Lady of Charity

LCUSA Mission vs. Mission of Local Associations:

Although the mission and vision statements of Ladies of Charity USA and Ladies of Charity Lake Travis, Inc., are similar, the major difference is that the national mission is to provide leadership to the local associations. Local missions provide opportunities and service to people in need.

An individual can directly join Ladies of Charity USA if they do not have a local association they can join through. We all are members of AIC.
