Keeping families together

Imagine a hospital designed to keeping families together during medial treatment.

That dream will soon come to life thanks to the generosity of a number of people including those at Kelowna Toyota.

The KGH Foundation’s Better Together campaign is building JoeAnna’s House, a home away from home for these families.

The foundation is now $30,000 closer to reaching its goal courtesy of Kelowna Toyota. 

“When we asked our staff what community project they would want to get behind, the response to support JoeAnna’s House was completely unanimous,” said Jamie Kaban, General Manger at Kelowna Toyota.

“Keeping families together when they need it the most aligns perfecting with our desire to support projects that will positively impact the entire community.”

JoeAnna’s House will offer approximately 20 rooms, a shared kitchen and home-like amenities to family members wishing to stay close to their loved ones, while they receive treatment at KGH. 

“When a child is sick, the added hardship of leaving home to travel for care can be completely overwhelming,” said Laura White, a social worker at KGH.

“Having JoeAnna’s House will significantly reduce the emotional and financial burden on these families.”
