About Us

Home About Us

We, the Little Sisters of the Poor are an international congregation of Roman Catholic women religious founded in 1839 by Saint Jeanne Jugan. Together with a diverse network of collaborators, we serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world.

Our Mission
Continuing the work of Saint Jeanne Jugan, our mission is to offer the neediest elderly poor 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.
Our Vision
Our vision is to create a family-like community where the wisdom of age is celebrated, and the compassionate love of Christ is shared with all.

Our Values

20180101_113403 (2)
Reverence for the sacredness of human life and for the uniqueness of each person, especially those who are poorest and/or weakest. This is reflected in care that is holistic and person-centered.
Humble Service
The desire to raise others up and to put their needs before our own; an appreciation of simple, everyday tasks and experiences and humble means in accomplishing our work.
Empathy for sharing the weaknesses and sufferings of others; eagerness to relieve pain in all its forms and to make the elderly happy.
Shared Responsibility
the recognition that life and all other goods are gifts from God and should therefore be used for the good of all; trust in God’s Providence and the generosity of others to provide for our needs; a spirit of gratitude and sharing.
Be Part Of Our Family
As Little Sisters of the Poor we follow the advice of Saint Jeanne Jugan, “Making the elderly happy – that is everything!” Volunteers can play an essential role in achieving this goal, providing our Residents with the extra attention that makes all the difference in their lives.
