Our History

Sr. Frederica Horvath emigrated to the United States from Hungary and in 1926 founded the Sisters of Social Service in Los Angeles. The mission of the religious community was to share in the social mission of the Church by addressing the needs and challenges of those struggling individuals and families living in poverty. They have always had a special emphasis on women and children living on the margins.
