Queen of Peace Residence

Peter Castellana III, Peter Castellana Jr. and the Castellana Foundation, along with Western Beef, recently donated $1,198.00 worth of groceries to Little Sisters of the Poor, an organization that provides services to residents that live at Queen of Peace.

At Queen of Peace, quality care is provided to 80 elderly Residents (60+ years old) who are without financial means, family or social support.

Many seniors come to Queen of Peace as independent residents residing in subsidized apartments on the 4th and 5th floors.

As their skills decline and they require more assistance, they can move to a floor where an appropriate level of skilled nursing care is provided.

The continuum of services permits a sense of security throughout life. Once a senior Resident comes to Queen of Peace, they have a home for the remainder of their years.

The Little Sisters of the Poor provide an array of services to each resident in an effort to meet their individual physical, social, spiritual and emotional needs.  These include medical and nursing services, pastoral services,  social services, and physical and occupational therapy. Additionally, they provide activity programs, as well as beauty and barber shop services.

The Little Sisters of the Poor are an international congregation of Roman Catholic women founded in 1839 by Saint Jeanne Jugan. Together with a diverse network of collaborators, they serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world.

Continuing the work of Saint Jeanne Jugan, their mission is to offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.
