Your help makes the difference!

The Little Sisters of the Poor trust in God’s Providence and the goodness of others to provide for the needs of our Residents, making up for what is lacking in government income and their pensions. We have been blessed by the generosity of our friends and benefactors in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts for 110 years. True to the counsels of St. Jeanne Jugan, we pray several times daily for our benefactors and the intentions they confide to us.
