“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 Residents’ needs. This might seem like a dangerously naïve answer in today’s complex healthcare environment, but trust has sustained generations of Little Sisters and those we serve for more than 100 years in Mobile.
Reimbursements from Medicaid and the small pensions of the Residents cover less than 40 percent of the actual cost of care. The remaining 60 percent of the needed income is generated through fundraising, including direct mail, church collections, legacies, grants, our annual Lawn Party, and other fundraising events. The Little Sisters also make personal visits to businesses, farms, and individuals to beg for needed items.
