  "Sisters Servants Kick-Off Building Campaign"

 In this Year of Consecrated Life 2015 - the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate begin a "Major Fundraising Campaign" for the expansion of St. Joseph's Adult Care Home.You have been reading passionate and informative articles by Sr. Michele Yakymovitch, Administrator, about our dream to continue to "go where the need is the greatest" for our people.

Today, St. Joseph's Home is full to capacity with 31 residents and a waiting list of elderly who want first floor rooms and a private bath; a necessary commodity in this day and age. Yes, it is true that St. Joseph's is that "hidden gem" that many people are finally finding out about. In fact, many people tell us that the SSMI's in Sloatsburg are those "hidden gems" that many still do not know about.

 This major project will cost between 4.5 and 5 million dollars. The expansion of St. Joseph's is a need that can only come true with generous donations from you, our benefactors.
Information regarding the expansion will be in the diocesan newspapers and on our website. We are also on Facebook and you can go to gofundme to donate towards the expansion.
Won't you be part of this dream?
