St. Joseph Home is guided by the following principles: Community, Gentle Presence, Servant Leadership and Heritage.
The SJH Community is multigenerational, heirs to the love and commitment of generations before and builders and ground layers for future ones. Our community braids together families, neighbors, staff, individuals with care needs, donors, volunteers, legislators and more. Each day community can be felt and seen through the culture and spirit at St. Joseph Home.
St. Joseph Home exercises great care and mindfulness in guaranteeing a safe, loving, engaging atmosphere for all. No matter your role, you are valued and can rely on St. Joseph Home for support. As John McGee noted, we all need to experience an environment where we feel safe and loved; where we can trust; and where we can engage in valued relationships.
Here we practice Servant Leadership as taught by Robert Greenleaf. Together all staff have a share in the ownership of both success and failure, and most importantly ownership of the future of St. Joseph Home. Each team member is unique and respected. United under one mission, members are empowered to lead and serve.
Sustained by our roots with The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, St. Joseph Home responds to the call to serve those in need. We, together with others in service, seek to make the world more just and loving. We do so by employing the mission of the Sisters to act justly, to build loving relationships, to share our resources with those in need, and to care for all creation.
“The daily contact and care given by the St. Joseph Home community to our son, John, draws all closer to become more as a family than as a caregiver-client relationship”. Ralph and Anne Chambers (SJH Parents)
