Donations

Your gracious support helps the needy elderly in our careIn the early 1800’s when Jeanne Jugan’s meager resources failed to provide for the homeless elderly she had welcomed into her home, she squashed her pride and picked up her basket to beg. Her begging was also a ministry. Through her fervent prayer she would draw down graces and favors from God for her benefactors. Since the time of Jeanne Jugan the begging basket has been a symbol of our dependence on both Divine Providence and our friends and benefactors.

Our meager sources of funding - Medicaid, Social Security, pensions - generate a constant deficit that must be bridged by the Little Sisters. Each day two Little Sisters make the rounds of businesses, markets, corporations, and parishes seeking aid. For nearly 150 years the Greater Cincinnati community has been receptive to our needs and responded generously.

Thank you for considering ways you can help.
