Better Together.

Following a successful fundraising campaign which saw the community and donors come together to give over $7 million to support it’s build and opening, JoeAnna’s House opened its doors to families in need in fall 2019.  Since then, it has provided a valuable resource for hundreds of families with loved ones receiving care at Kelowna General Hospital offering affordable accommodations just steps away from KGH.

The beautiful, modern farm-house style home-away-from-home features 20 family rooms, a contemporary communal cooking and living space and home-like amenities including laundry facilities, a gym and a kids’ play area.

JoeAnna’s House is owned and operated by the KGH Foundation and is entirely supported by your donations.

“People always ask why, but maybe they should ask why not! You get to work with the nicest people, for the nicest people. It’s the best kind of job satisfaction you’ll ever find.”

“I am inspired by how selfless people are – caring for others who they have never met and whose story they may never know.  But yet they give generously to make the situation of others better.  I have so much respect for those who act to make the world a better place.  In the end it’s all that matters.”
