Perseverance in Hope: The Annual Joseph’s Home Benefit Luncheon was Thursday, June 21, at Windows on the River. The luncheon celebrated the remarkable healing and achievements of the acutely ill homeless men who have stabilized their health and transformed their lives at Joseph’s Home. Dan Moulthrop, CEO of The City Club of Cleveland, served as emcee again this year and was accompanied by keynote speaker, Judge Michael Ryan. The inaugural David Henderson Memorial Award was presented to John “Jack” McGrath for his outstanding advocacy and support of the Sisters of Charity Health System and Joseph’s Home.

With the help of our generous sponsors, donors, partners, and friends, the event raised over $38,000 to benefit the men of Joseph’s Home! All funds raised will be used to provide meals, shelter and other care for the residents of Joseph’s Home. Thank you to all in attendance for their support and generosity!
