"The Little Sisters often go from donation to donation to make ends meet and rejoice in the generosity that flows in support of their work. Continuing the work of Saint Jeanne Jugan, our MISSION is to offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.In today’s economy, we must count on community support more than ever. Jeanne always thanked her benefactors by praying for them—and she thanked God at the same time. No one who lives in the home is wealthy. Thoughtful attention, spiritual support and appropriate medical care is drastically needed." -Dolores Kollmer, Developmental Director
