Our Work

As Little Sisters of the Poor our mission is to care for the elderly in the spirit of humble service as bequeathed to us by our foundress, Jeanne Jugan.  Her message to the novices of her time was:

“Making the elderly happy, that is all that counts”,
and her message is still timely, if not more so, today.

Our vow of hospitality involves us in the ‘temporal realities of the time and country in which we live.’ (Constitutions of the LSP)
