Jeanne Jugan Residence needs your help!As a mendicant order, (one which relies solely on the charity of others), we do not enjoy any type of endowment or long-term funding. Following in St. Jeanne Jugan’s footsteps, we Little Sisters rely solely on God’s Providence through the generosity of our friends and benefactors to provide for the needs of our Residents. Approximately 60% of the funds needed to operate our Home come from the Residents—most of this is Medicaid reimbursement for nursing care. The remaining 40% of the needed income is generated through fundraising—everything from direct mail campaigns, church collections, legacies and grants, to the many fund raising events held each year. We invite you to consider becoming part of the loving family of the Jeanne Jugan Residence by helping the Little Sisters of the Poor through your prayers, generous gift of self or contributions. Tomorrow’s needs in caring for the elderly can be met by helping today!
