• At Joseph’s House, we provide healing care to homeless men and women with late-stage and end-stage AIDS and terminal cancer through physical nurturing, spiritual companionship and the restoration of dignity.

  • Joseph’s House provides residents with 24-hour nursing care, including personal care services and medical case management.

  • We foster the opportunity for shared community life with family-style meals and the companionship of other residents, staff, and volunteers.

  • We work to create a home where the values of unreserved love and friendship are practiced, seeking to practice compassionate care so that the act of service itself becomes a source of healing, both for the served and the server.

  • We believe that no one should die alone and members of our community keep vigil with residents who are dying.

  • Together, we nurture the living and accompany the dying.
