Mission and Values
St. Ann's programs recognize and enhance human dignity and worth by providing residential care and services to abused and neglected children and to single pregnant and parenting adolescents in crisis, as well as quality day care to the children of working families.
Human life is inherently valuable and worthy of respect, support, and nurturance. These words encompass our philosophy. They are rooted in our Judeo-Christian heritage and are the foundation on which St. Ann's tradition of caring has been built. Staff and volunteers strive to live this belief by reaching out to the women and children in our community who are particularly vulnerable.
Dedication and Love
St. Ann's is administered by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, a religious community of women who have dedicated their lives to serving the needy. The Sisters are assisted by a qualified and committed staff of approximately 90 full and part time employees, as well as consultants. This includes child care workers and maternity program staff, which account for a majority of the positions, as well as physicians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers; teachers, child care specialists, and therapists; maintenance, housekeeping and food services staff; and accounting and administrative personnel.
We are also blessed with volunteers who play an important healing role. Individuals and groups give freely of themselves, knowing that someone's day is made brighter by their presence.
From its very beginnings, St. Ann’s opened its doors to the poor of all races and faiths, a commitment that continues to this day. St. Ann's participates in federally-funded programs. No person will be discriminated against on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, age or handicap.
