The secret of volunteering at Jeanne Jugan Residence is simple; when you give of yourself to the elderly it comes back to you in ways you cannot imagine. You may volunteer once a month, once a week, or more if you like. There are dozens of opportunities to bring joy to the lives of our senior residents.
