David Hilfiker founded Joseph’s House in the summer of 1990 when his young family and three of his patients, men who were homeless and had AIDS, moved into the House to form a community of welcome. David’s roles at Joseph’s House have changed over the years, but his friendship and his pleasure as our community matures in love have only deepened.
David recently shared the news of his Alzheimer’s disease in an email to his friends and on his new blog. This generous act; living the difficult realities of his life in a transparent and self-reflective way is how David lives his life.
To all of us at Joseph’s House, David Hilfiker is a beloved teacher and friend. We share David’s reflection on his diagnosis here.
