This chapter presents oral history interviews with five American nuns who dedicated themselves to serving the underserved such as refugees, immigrants, and homeless people: Sister Marie Lee, a Dominican who directs Project Regina, a nonprofit program she founded to help Southeast Asian refugees learn sewing skills and English; Sister Fran Tobin, a member of the Society of the Sacred Heart and a staff attorney at Catholic Charities, specializing in immigration law; Sister Jeanne Cashman, who lives at the Ursuline Convent in Delaware and works for Sojourners' Place, a center for the homeless; Sister Peg Hynes, a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Chestnut Hill in New Jersey and one of the founders of Heart of Camden; and Sister Mary Rose McGeady, a member of the Daughters of Charity who presides over Covenant House, an international agency based in New York City. The narratives capture the women's experiences over the past fifty years, beginning in the 1960s.
