Description
Saint Joseph's Home, as all facilities owned by the Little Sisters of the Poor, exists to extend hospitality towards the Aged suffering from financial need, loneliness or other difficulties. We do this recalling the words of the Lord " I was a stranger and you welcomed me" Matthew 25.35

Together with our staff, we do this, continuing the charismatic inspiration of Jeanne Jugan our Foundress, through love-filled service for our elderly brothers and sisters and witness to the compassionate love and mercy of God for all persons.
