The Little Sisters of the Poor recently received a $2,000 grant from the First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association. The grant money has been designated to defray the cost of renovations to Holy Family Residence’s beauty parlor/barber shop, gift shop, residents’ country store, and outdoor pavilion.
The Little Sisters of the Poor, who have been serving the elderly poor in Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors in creating a family spirit for the residents at Holy Family Residence. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can live their last years in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
