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.
Each year we must raise over 60% of our operating costs.
“How in the world do you survive?” people often ask us. Trust is the simple, yet radical answer. We trust in God’s Providence and the goodness of others to help us provide for the needs of the Residents at the Jeanne Jugan Little Sisters of the Poor home in San Pedro. This might seem like a dangerously naïve answer in today’s complex healthcare environment, but trust is what has sustained generations of Little Sisters for a total of over 110 years in Los Angeles.
Approximately 40% of the funds needed to operate Jeanne Jugan Home are generated by the Residents. The remaining 60% of the needed income is generated through fundraising – everything from direct mail campaigns, church collections, legacies and grants, to the AUX of LSOP fundraiser event we hold each year.
