About Us

Salesian Missions (SM) was founded 55 years ago to provide financial, educational, and humanitarian assistance to the Salesians of Don Bosco, the largest missionary order of the Catholic Church located in 135 countries. They provide basic, vocational and technical education to poor and abandoned youth. SM headquarters is located in New Rochelle, NY.
