About JW House

Located on the campus of Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center, JW House provides a warm, comfortable “home away from home” for families facing medical crises. Families and individuals from area hospitals are welcomed into the JW House family for rest and self-care during the day or overnight while their loved one is in the hospital.

Our Vision

No family should be separated when they need each other the most.

Our Mission

JW House keeps families together during medical crisis by offering a welcoming home close to the hospital and providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope.

Our Core Values

We respect the dignity of the patients, families, caregivers, volunteers and the community, and believe that:

  • The presence of family helps the patient heal.
  • Addressing the caregiver’s mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing helps the patient heal.
  • We need to face the challenges of serious illness together as a family and as a community.
  • Every day is precious and we will never, ever give up.
