Meet Our Family

“I’m so happy to be here in Kansas City and to meet all of the wonderful volunteers, employees, and benefactors who share in our mission of care for the elderly. God bless everyone who is a part of our large extended family!”

Mother Margaret

“I’ve lived here for over 20 years. Before that, I worked for the sisters for about 15 years. After my husband died, I wanted to work some place I liked, and this was it. After I retired, I moved into the apartments. I love my apartment! It’s home. I’m thankful to Jesus for guiding me to the Little Sisters of the Poor.”

Marge, Apartment Resident

“I love working here! I have been here for 15 years. The thing I like most about my job is helping to take care of the Residents. They are like family to me, and treat me like a daughter.”

Betsy, Employee – Housekeeping/Receptionist

“I first came to the Jeanne Jugan Center 20 years ago when my children were volunteering with their school. I started volunteering regularly about 8 years ago. I love the atmosphere here, and the way people care and appreciate you. I can really feel God’s love here.”

Janie, Volunteer

“I started volunteering with the sisters in 2004, and became a member of the Association Jeanne Jugan in 2006. I enjoy being with the people here, both the Residents and the other volunteers. Everyone is very nice. It’s a friendly place.”

“I like living at the Jeanne Jugan Center. I enjoy being able to go to Mass every day, and I really like the outings we get to go on. These are things I couldn’t do when I lived by myself.”

Judy, Resident

“I love the sisters’ mission of serving the elderly. Earlier in my career I thought I would work with young children, but God had different plans for me. I believe he led me here to the Little Sisters and the Residents,” said Gaby.

Linda summed up her career beautifully with these words, “When I come to work I feel happy. No matter what is going on in my life, when I get here I am happy.”
