With Jesus… let us reach out to those most in need…those who need us to give them a hand, who need us to look at them with love, to share their pain…
-Pope Francis


Desales Service Works is a project of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales. DSW exists to impact the lives of others and to Live Jesus! We provide opportunities for face-to-face service, and we work to change the lives of those we serve and to expand the mindset of those who serve. All of our efforts seek to improve struggling neighborhoods while recognizing the goodness of these impoverished communities.
