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.
Our healing garden is now under construction. Please help us bring our vision of an accessible healing garden to life.
