Giving Opportunities for St. Joseph's Carmelite Home

A history of providing care for children in crisis

Two tiny frame homes, purchased by Mother Maria Teresa Tauscher after her arrival in Northwest Indiana in 1913 were the heart of what has become the St. Joseph’s Carmelite Home of today. The sisters’ private rooms are still adjacent to the children’s living quarters. Our Home has served as a refuge and a symbol of hope for children and families suffering from despair.

Carmelite Home

In the beginning, the home relied upon the generosity of the community. Most monies today come via state contracts; your donations help purchase the "extras."

St. Joseph's Carmelite Home for Girls is now designated a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. All your contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Your monetary donation makes a difference

100% of the money goes towards the children.
Life continues to be hard for children, and the Carmelite Sisters continue to help. Will you help too? Please consider contributing to the work of the St. Joseph’s Carmelite Home.

Caring for children requires much more than a roof over their heads. Needs include sheets & clothing; diapers & formula; books & field trips. Become part of our extended family. Donations in any amount are appreciated.

  • Just $30 a month (one dollar a day) from 1,500 people will help our Home meet its needs for today and tomorrow.
  • Seraphim Angel Donors. $5000 or more annually
  • Cherubim Angel Donors. $1,000 or more annually
  • Archangel Donors. $500 or more annually
  • Activity Sponsor. Tickets and transportation to a special event.
  • In Kind gifts of goods may be tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.
