Mount St. Joseph Association

About Mount St. Joseph Association

Hundreds of families, friends and community members make up the Mount St. Joseph Association. These individuals work closely together to promote the health and well-being of the residents of Mount St. Joseph in practical ways. The Association supports the Daughters of St. Mary of Providence with a common purpose to enable the residents to reach their full potential.


The Mount St. Joseph Association cares for the residents and day clients in three main ways:

  • To raise funds for critical needs that are beyond the scope of the Mount St. Joseph operating budget
  • To reward and honor staff who provide dedicated care
  • To plan and fund year-round activities, outings, and events for residents

Mount St. Joseph Association Acquisitions

Mount St. Joseph Association supports Mount St. Joseph with vital purchases that address the medical, safety, and security needs of the residents. These purchases include handicapped-equipped vans, therapy bathing systems, electronic lifts, wheelchairs, sensory stimulation equipment, defibrillators, computers for medical records, and dental equipment. In addition, the Mount St. Joseph Association pays for buses for off-campus transportation needs.

Because Mount St. Joseph was built in 1935, ongoing assistance is needed to modernize aging infrastructure. These projects are beyond the scope of the facility’s operating budget. In recent years, Mount St. Joseph Association has funded windows, fixtures, major appliances, bedroom furniture, a telephone and Wi-Fi system, and an LED sign at the main entrance.
