Sacred Heart Home is a free home for persons who cannot afford to pay for care. No payment of any kind is accepted from patients or their families, nor from the government.
In accordance with their Rule, the Sisters place their trust in the loving providence of God. That trust has never failed. Donations large and small, from groups and individuals, have provided the necessary funds to support the work.
The Sacred Heart Home was established in 1930 by the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne. Over the past 100 plus years, the Sisters have lovingly served the special end-of-life needs of our patients and their family members in our homes.
