St. Joseph Home

Pillars in Action: Community


As you walk the halls of any St. Joseph Home program you can feel the unconditional love, hear the murmur of individuals finding their voice and see the excitement of the possibilities each person possesses.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to experience all of this first hand while talking to a parent about the Elvis Tribute show at the Home.  This parent commented on how spectacular Elvis was and how he truly connects with the individuals living at St. Joseph Home.  She went on to convey how wonderful the activities department is and how each staff goes out of their way to make each resident recognize that they are a valued member of a Community.  The genuine definition of our Community is allowing individuals to discover their own identity all the while growing in love and compassion.
