Many parishes that support Joseph’s Home talk the talk and walk the walk of serving the most vulnerable in our community by sharing the love of Christ.

For those dealing with trauma, it is often difficult to discuss or express the events that have shaped their lives. Sometimes the words just cannot be said for fear of reliving the trauma.

Richard M. and Jeanne Colleran Weaver made a visionary gift that has become the seed of the first Joseph’s Home endowment fund, the Sister Joan Gallagher Endowment Fund.
