On May 5, 1980, Karidat immersed itself in the island community with the goal to fulfill the demands of the ministry through service, advocacy for a just community, and convening all people of goodwill to do the same. In the organization's 36th year in the CNMI, executive director Lauri B. Ogumoro said that Karidat’s mission has not changed.
Karidat remained steadfast even after Typhoon Soudelor devastated Saipan. With the help of several businesses, corporations and individuals, the group was able to provide aid to those in need.
