Caring for Generations of Families since 1894

The Franciscan Way is all about connecting people to their life’s purpose – whether they are living or serving others in one of our communities or programs. Our mission – to celebrate life and serve with joy – connects us. Our tradition of caring for others for over a century is rooted in the compassion and servant leadership taught us by foundress Mother Mary Theresa. Her example lives on in the thousands of associates that serve in Franciscan Ministries and the thousands of families entrusted to us.

“The Franciscan Way is about living our mission every day. We know we’ve fulfilled our mission when seniors want to live in our communities, associates want to serve here and collaborators choose us as a partner because they see compelling evidence that our mission drives our service, quality and stewardship.”
– Judy Amiano, President & Cheif Executive Officer
