The Restorative Power of a Few Moments
Special message regarding COVID-19
Those who work or volunteer at JW House are full of boundless love, and for nearly twelve years, we have done whatever is humanly possible to comfort families during their most challenging hours. As we are learning how to best respond to the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, we didn't want to prioritize the health of our families, at the risk of our volunteers and staff.
The Board of Directors of JW House has made the difficult decision to redirect all families in need of our services to our local hotel partners. We are still in close contact with medical providers and social workers to ensure that every family is taken care of to the best of our ability.
We are grateful for the outpouring of concern we've received in response to the pandemic. Due to the necessary safety precautions, we have suspended all volunteer activities and our staff is working very hard to ensure that every family is taken care of.
Thank you and please stay healthy!
