Worldwide Expansion

A Resident and Little Sister in Cotounu, Benin, pause before the Holy Family, model of “our little family,” as Saint Jeanne Jugan said.

In 1851 a small group of Little Sisters crossed the English Channel to establish the first home outside France in Hammersmith, a suburb of London. Spain followed, then Belgium, Ireland, North Africa and North America.

The first truly missionary foundation was made in Calcutta, India in 1882. Our newest homes have been founded in the last decade in India, Peru and the Philippines.

Today there are Little Sisters following in the footsteps of Saint Jeanne Jugan and serving the needy elderly in 31 countries, including:
