As Little Sisters of the Poor, we devote our lives to making the elderly happy, but we cannot do it alone.  The cost of caring for the elderly in a manner respectful of their dignity far exceeds the income received from the Residents’ pensions, Social Security and Medicaid.  Over 55% of our operating costs must come from donations; over $250,000 a month is needed. To cover this constant deficit and to make necessary facility repairs, we rely on your generosity.

Ways you can make a contribution:

Participate in fundraisers or host your own; bring your in-kind gift to Jeanne Jugan Residence, mail your gift (Little Sisters of the Poor, 185 Salem Church Road, Newark, Delaware 19713) or donate on-line.
