Joe's House and the Cancer Support Community (CSC)

Joe's House has teamed up with the The Cancer Support Community (CSC); whose mission is "To ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community."

The two organizations joined forces in July to field calls from patients. Now patients calling the Joe's House toll free line are being helped by counselors professionally trained in social work. So, if the caller needs assistance with something other than lodging they have the right person on the line.

Our new partner says: "CSC is proud to work with Joe's house to bring more supportive help to people whose lives are impacted by cancer."

We feel the same way CSC!
