St. John’s Circle of Care Auxiliary

The purpose of the auxiliary organization is to promote and advance the welfare of the residents of St. Johns through interpretation of the home to the public, service to the home and it’s residents, and fundraising in a manner satisfactory to the governing board with the planning of the community. The auxiliary also provides a $300 Education Award yearly. Applications can be obtained via the HR Department.

In 2007 the auxiliary purchased this gazebo that rests in the St. John Lutheran Home courtyard for the residents to enjoy.  In 2010, the auxiliary provided matching funds to help the nursing department purchase 2 additional resident lifts.  These are just two examples of the impact the St. John Auxiliary has on the St. John Campus!
