“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 St. Joseph’s Home.  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 127 years in Louisville.

Approximately 50% of the funds needed to operate St. Joseph’s Home are generated by the Residents, with about 90% of this coming from Medicaid reimbursement for nursing care. The remaining 50% of the needed income is generated through fundraising – everything from direct mail campaigns, church collections, legacies and grants, to the numerous fundraising events we hold each year.
