In celebration of National Hospitality House Week, we invite you to join us for one, or both, or these inspiring talks! Whether you are a guest of JW House, a volunteer, supporter, or donor, it is likely that you, or someone you know, is or has been a caregiver to a loved one. Hospitality Houses, like JW House, care for the caregiver. During this special week, we are bringing in two speakers with expertise in caregiver health and wellness to share their wisdom with our community! Light refreshments will be provided at each event.
