Can you help us by making a recurring gift or one-time donation?
The day-to-day expense of providing for the elderly poor – individuals who have outlived their resources – is quite costly. Every donation counts. Each dollar helps us provide safe-shelter, loving care, nutritious meals, enriching activities, and medical and nursing care to this city’s needy aged seniors.
Your gift is essential!
Caring for our dear ones in a manner respectful of their dignity far exceeds the income received from their small pensions, Social Security, or Medicaid. In fact, we must raise 48% of the income needed through fundraising – direct mail, church collections, planned-giving, grants, and events.
Further, as good stewards of what God has given us through your generosity, we must care for our aging buildings and infrastructure by making vital upgrades and repairs.
Following in the tradition set by Saint Jeanne Jugan, the Little Sisters of the Poor do not accept endowments or receive any other regular source of income. She believed that by being poor, we are completely free to rely on God’s Providence for all our needs. You are the instrument through which this is possible. We remember our benefactors daily in our prayers.
There Are Many Ways You Can Help!
“Give us the house – if God fills it,
God will not abandon it!”
