JW House’s new annual fundraiser, JW’s Celebration of Hope, gathered 300 supporters of JW’s dream at Villa Ragusa on the morning of April 30th. After a poem by Mattie Stepenak, another young man taken too soon, audience members heard testimony from staff and board members, including a video (below) highlighting JW House services.
A very special family, the Iorns family, was scheduled to do a live testimonial about their time at JW House. Two days before the event, their little baby began running a fever. Ever the strong mother, Camille Iorns recorded a special video just for JW House. The video was the centerpiece of a wonderful program. We are thrilled to share it with you!
The event was a huge success, raising over $150,000 in gifts for 2015 and over years to come. If you would like to make a gift to support JW House, please click here.

This year, we’ve set our sights higher and need YOU to help us reach our goal of $10,000 raised online during the 24 hours of SV Gives from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm on May 5.
Here are the details:
- GIVE to JW House on SVGives, May 5th (but you can donate before and until 12:00pm on May 5th!)
- For every $10 you donate to JW House’s SVGives page, you get another chance to win the tickets
- BONUS: For an extra chance to win, post a video to the JW House Facebook or Instagram (@JWHouseYPAC) using the hashtag #JWHouseGives.
- Tell us in your video why you support JW House or why you decided to donate! You must make a donation in addition to posting a video- but a video increases your chances of winning!
