“Working with the Little Sisters and our Residents is a privilege. Our staff reflects the Little Sisters’ mission in their daily works by caring for our Residents. The spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan is ever present in our Home and can be seen and felt throughout; from the exciting daily activities in the building to the delicious meals being served with love. What joy it brings me to be a part of the Little Sisters’ family.”

"I started here as a medical assistant, then months later I earned my LVN license, then one year later, I became an RN. I am currently the Director of Nursing, because God is good. Coming to this home in San Pedro is one of the greatest blessings that God has given me. The employees and residents are like my own extended family plus the Sisters endless love, support, kindness and understanding are something that I could never find anywhere else. I feel excited to come to work every day."

“Being out on the collecting, we experience Divine Providence daily. God sends us his friends in markets, businesses, warehouses, and parishes. We would never make ends meet without our benefactors, and we always remember them in grateful prayer.”

“My family came to Los Angeles in the 50s. We settled in Boyle Heights and later on I actually worked for the Little Sisters of the Poor at St. Anne’s Home in Boyle Heights. It is such a blessing for me to be here in San Pedro. I love being around the Sisters and being able to go to the chapel every day."
-Resident since 2006
“I am truly blessed to be a part of the Little Sisters of the Poor family. It is fulfilling in life to know that the elderly in our Home will be in a warm and loving environment. The mission of the Sisters through our Lord Jesus Christ, is amazing, in giving the elderly an opportunity to enjoy what life has to offer them.”

“I was born on the Island of Ischia Ponte in Italy but grew up in San Pedro. I have the best of all worlds – being at the Little Sisters of the Poor and being in San Pedro with my family close by. I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
