Joseph is one of the most influential patriarchs of the Old Testament and he is our patron saint here at Joseph House. Joseph’s story highlights the proper attitude toward difficulty and misfortune. As we all go on a journey of self discovery, we all will face our own trials and tribulations but what Joseph’s story teaches us is that God always walks with us through the darkest moments in life.

In community here at Joseph House, it reminds me we mature and grow as we forgive each other in both minute and grand things. Another thing that correlates with me and the awesomeness of being here at the Joseph House is to use our gifts no matter where we are in life — don’t hide them! Even in the midst of hardship, God calls us to offer our gifts to each other for the sake of the salvation of the world. By salvation, I mean reconciliation which always brings greater peace and justice. Booyah! 

Forgiveness is the way of love.

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.
