What do you enjoy most about St. Francis?

St. Francis is more of a home rather than a facility to our residents. Each and every team member of the medical staff treats our residents with compassion, dignity and respect. They are dedicated to serve our community with their best, always with a smile on their faces.

What do you love most about working at St. Francis?

The thing I like most about St. Francis is that this is really “home.” The moment I first walked in, I knew it was where I wanted to be. The staff, residents, tenants and management were all so welcoming and seemed to be very involved in each other’s lives.

Debbie Sturgeon

Apartment Manager

What do you love most about working at Catholic Charities NH?

They gave me the opportunity of a lifetime with the job I have. I have enjoyed this job more than any other in my life. I go home feeling fulfilled, and like I have accomplished so much for my 25 tenants. I do my job but also have other jobs I do for other departments, which makes things new all the time
