A very warm welcome to Jeanne Jugan Residence and Pavilion in Somerville, Massachusetts! We are located between Boston and Lexington, where the American Revolution began with the “shot heard around the world.”
Built in 1978 to replace a century-old building on the same property, Jeanne Jugan Residence has a special place in the history of our Congregation. It was the first home of the Little Sisters in the United States to be named after our foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan!
Like the shot heard around the world, Saint Jeanne Jugan’s founding gesture of hospitality toward the aged poor in a small town in France has had an impact across the globe. As we follow in her footsteps in the greater Boston area, we strive to keep alive her legacy—offering the needy elderly a family-like home where they will experience love and respect as they journey toward eternal life.
Our front door is always open. Please stop in for a visit; we think you will soon feel very much at home with us at Jeanne Jugan Residence.
