About this organization


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


The Little Sisters of the Poor, following the example of their saintly foundress, Jeanne Jugan, offer the needy elderly a family-like place where they will experience love and respect as they journey toward eternal life. Today, we offer three levels of care: - Independent Living Apartments: 30 apartments for low-income seniors - Personal Care: 22 private rooms - Skilled Nursing Care: 44 private rooms (Medicaid and Medicare certified) The Little Sisters live at Holy Family Home and are privileged to serve the Residents 24-hours a day, seven days a week. We take a spiritual approach to aging which is exemplified by the central location of our chapel, the presence of a full-time chaplain, daily Mass, rosary, and other devotions as well as regular availability of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. All Resident bedrooms are single occupancy and have private bathrooms. Some of the rooms also have private showers. Although each independent apartment has kitchen facilities, apartment Residents are welcome to enjoy home style meals in the dining rooms as often as they wish. They also fully participate in the life of the Home which includes Mass, recreation programs, and outings. The Little Sisters stay with the Residents when they are dying. The Sisters sit and pray for the Residents, taking turns during the night and during the day, as well as lovingly supporting the family members.
