Helping Change One Life at a Time with Sober Living

About Joseph: 

Joseph was born and raised in southern California. As a young boy he enjoyed video games, baseball and riding his bicycle. He volunteered and later worked at the local bicycle shop. As he grew into a young man his passion turned to mountain bike riding, where he participated in races and won numerous trophies. Joseph also rode dirt bikes and loved riding his motorcycle.


Joseph joined the US Army after graduating High School in 2008 and began his Boot Camp training at Fort Benning, GA (now known as Fort Moore). He was stationed at Fort Campbell, Tennessee/Kentucky (Home of the Screaming Eagles) assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. He deployed to Afghanistan in May 2010 to April 2011. Joseph received an honorable discharge as an E4 Specialist, in January 2012.                      

After being discharged from the Army, he relocated to Florida to attend MMI Institute, majoring in motorcycle mechanics and working at a local motorcycle shop in Florida.

In 2013 Joseph returned home to California to be near his family. He was a 100% disabled combat veteran that struggled with PTSD and drug addiction. Coping with everyday life was a constant struggle for him. His addiction cost him losing his family, employment and leading to homelessness.                                

The family lost Joseph on June 22, 2023.  The addiction he struggled with wore on his body until he succumbed.  Joseph left behind his wife, and four daughters. We realized the pain other families have experienced over similar circumstances which compelled our family to form a foundation in his name.  Our goal is to help recovering addicts with a safe house where they can reside while transitioning back into society.                          

Joseph was a good man with many talents, and a patriot who lost his life through substance abuse.  He will always live in our hearts and through Joe’s House Foundation.

Mission Statement for Joe’s House Foundation:

At Joe’s House Foundation, we are dedicated to creating a safe, compassionate, and vibrant refuge through the thoughtful promotion and facilitation of shared housing. Our mission is to empower those facing life challenges, such as homelessness, or reintegration from institutional settings, by offering safe, stable, and nurturing transitional housing solutions.

We believe in the power of shared housing to address pressing societal needs, including veteran homelessness, and people in recovery from substance use disorder. Our commitment is to provide a home for individuals to discover like-minded housemates, create harmonious living environments, and collectively contribute to a more balanced and resilient future. We strive to create an environment where residents can rebuild their lives with dignity, purpose, and a renewed sense of hope.


To fulfill our mission, we pledge to:

We envision a community where every individual has a safe and dignified place to call home. Through our efforts, we strive to break the cycle of homelessness, foster empathy, and create a society where everyone is treated with respect and compassion.

Create a Safe and Supportive Environment: We prioritize the creation of safe and welcoming spaces that foster a sense of security and well-being for all residents. Our housing programs are designed to be supportive, nurturing, and conducive to personal growth.

Facilitate Connections: Connect individuals seeking shared housing opportunities with compatible housemates to create a sense of belonging and friendship within their homes.

Foster Community: Encourage the development of nurturing and supportive communities within shared homes, emphasizing open communication and shared responsibilities.

Provide Resources: Offer guidance and resources to help residents navigate the challenges and opportunities of shared housing, ensuring a positive and enriching experience.

Advocacy and Education: Act as an advocate for the shared housing community by working with policymakers and sharing insights and knowledge to drive social and legislative change.

At Joe’s House Foundation, we envision a world where shared living is not only a practical and sustainable housing choice but a transformative way of life that fosters personal growth, social bonds, and a sense of belonging. Together, we aim to create shared housing experiences that empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives, all while building stronger, more resilient communities.

People We Accommodate

We are convinced that shared housing is capable of addressing urgent societal issues such as adult foster care, people recovering from substance abuse disorders, veteran homelessness, and abused women. Our mission is to offer a space where people can find other like-minded roommates, establish peaceful living quarters, and work together to build a more resilient and balanced future. Our goal is to establish a space where people can start over in a dignified, meaningful, and hopeful manner.
