NPR: “A Big Helping of Christmas Compassion at Joseph’s House”


Rachel Martinjohn, host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday came for breakfast to get a sense of what Joseph’s House is like around the holidays. The tree was decorated, the lights were up and there was plenty of hot coffee.  There was definitely a sense of holiday cheer in the air, but in most ways the breakfast was like it is on other days. Plenty of food, good conversation, a joke or two, and checking in about how folks are feeling – whether they are at the table or up in bed.

Rachel and her team stayed for a few hours, talking with residents, staff, and volunteers about what our community life is like. Listen to what they heard and donate to help us serve with compassion at Christmas and throughout the year.
