Members in every dispensation have practiced principles of provident living because the Savior is the architect of the welfare plan.
Revisit key milestones throughout the 75-year existence of the Church’s welfare program with our interactive timeline.
Although the welfare plan was not formalized until 1936, the early Saints recognized the importance of self-reliance and service.
Members around the world strive to become self-reliant and achieve a balanced life.
When we contribute our time, talents, and resources to assist others, we are building the kingdom of God.
Living welfare principles is about putting our faith in Jesus Christ into action.
