About JoeAnna’s House
JoeAnna’s House is a home with 20 rooms to house up to 20 families at any given time. The home features an expansive communal great room, a fully-outfitted kitchen and pantry, a kids’ play area and many other amenities to ensure guests feel at home while they attend to a loved one in care at KGH.
Patients heal faster and more effectively when surrounded by their loved ones. And family members bond with others through a shared experience. That’s why JoeAnna’s House is so important. It will be a home-away-from-home that will keep families together when they need it most.
Meet Joe & Anna Huber
The inspiration behind the name.
JoeAnna’s House is the culmination of vision and intention of the Huber family of Kelowna, founders of Prestige Hotels & Resorts.
Joseph & Anna Huber settled their family in the Okanagan in the 1960s. With all family members contributing to their early endeavours in the hospitality industry, they felt very blessed to build a life that would allow them to serve others. With their giving spirit in mind, and to demonstrate kindness and caring for others, the family is proud to honour their legacy by partnering with the KGH Foundation to build JoeAnna’s House. Their lead gift of over $1 million was instrumental in initiating this project, in their name.
Prestige Hotels and Resorts in communities across the region continue to fundraise on behalf of JoeAnna’s House, donating thousands every year.
JoeAnna’s House is funded and operated by The KGH Foundation, an independent, Board-directed, non-profit organization. JoeAnna’s House is managed with a small staff and dedicated volunteers. We look forward to many more years of service to families from across the interior of British Columbia.
