Celebrating the success of our first Joseph House Gala

Last week we celebrated our first big community bash with over 100 close friends and supportive folks in our community.

A Joseph House Feast

We shared our stories with one another and discussed our mission. Bishop Bill Wack shared his thoughts on how the mission of Joseph House reminds him of Dorothy Day’s mission to bring love and hospitality to those society tends to exclude. And Tallahassee’s Public Defender, Andy Thomas, addressed the vast injustices in our criminal justice system and the importance of seeing those who often are unseen in our community.

We met our financial goal

We are happy to share that an additional success of our gala is that we raised enough funds to begin our house expansion project! This will afford us three more rooms for three more brothers in need of a home and community in their journey back with us.

The art of accompaniment


Some may volunteer by accompanying our residents through challenging tasks.

Others may wish to volunteer by assisting helping us around the house, creating a sense of belonging for all of us.

Finally, others may simply want to join us on occasion at our community events to learn more.

Responding to Material Needs


There are very real costs to create a home for those hoping to re-enter society after incarceration. 

Joseph House, through the generosity of our donors, has been able to take concrete steps towards justice by restoring the dignity of those leaving the prison systems.

Sharing the Good News


In less than one year our ministry has grown in leaps and bounds, impacting the lives of many for one simple reason: people are sharing the good news. 

We encourage you to share Joseph House with your family, your friends, your community, inviting them to join us as we join those re-entering society after prison.
