The Sacramento City Council has voted to approve what will become the West Coast’s first hospice facility specifically for the homeless. The privately funded $3-million hospice will be called Joshua’s House and will provide critical treatment and residential care to homeless people dealing with terminal illnesses.
Joshua’s House will have 16 to 20 beds, private rooms, an indoor garden, a chapel, skylights and a library, all to provide the most comfort to the terminally ill staying there. The name is dedicated to Joshua Lee, grandson of the project’s founder Marlene von Friederichs-Fitzwater, who died while living on the streets in 2014.
