Playground…Coming Soon!!!!

Almost one year ago, the Board of Directors made the tough decision to demolish a beautiful swimming pool and spa that came with the purchase of our property.  It wasn’t too hard to realize, when families are suffering from a hospitalized loved one in traumatic medical crisis, no one is thinking about laying around by a pool, no matter how beautiful it is.  The reduction in maintenance and utilities will allow us to spend more donor dollars on the operations and support for the house and families.  

One of our very own local playground installation contractors, Steve Stann, the owner of Perpetual Parks and Playgrounds, Inc. approached us about installing a playground.   We want to THANK the following donors for their vision to help the children of our guests, to enjoy a time of respite and fun, while they too are victims of hard times when a family member is in critical condition medically.  The emotional healing and the memories of their stay at Jacob’s House will be softened by the times they will be able to enjoy our Jacob’s House Playground very soon!

2015 Emerald Service Charitable Organization of the Year -TVCC

Jacob’s House was awarded the 2015 Emerald Service Charitable Organization of the Year Award by the Temecula Chamber of Commerce at the 2016 Awards Gala!  Our gratitude is beyond words and we cherish the honor of being recognized by an amazing community of partners, donors, friends, family, and faithful volunteers.  Without your support and faith in our Mission to help families in their time of traumatic medical crisis, we would not be where we are today.  It is with humble and grateful appreciation that we are honored to serve the citizens of Temecula and the surrounding communities, as well as serving the greater SW Riverside County area hospitals.  Through the trust and commitment of Southwest Healthcare Systems and medical staff from Temecula Valley Hospital, Inland Valley Hospital, Rancho Springs Medical Center, and Rady Children’s Murrieta, we have received our family guest referrals, making our jobs a joy to serve others in the darkest times in life.  We can proudly say we’ve served 205 guests for 1,500 individual guest night stays from 27 states and 5 international countries.  Finally, we cannot fail to mention the wonderful, giving, caring, and hardworking Service Clubs, Church Organizations, Scout Troops, Philanthropic Organizations, Professional Associations, and Business Clubs, School Clubs, and beautiful individual volunteers….who spend their time, energy, and effort to clean, sweep, wipe, paint, build, and plant, to keep Jacob’s House sparkling and pristine every day!  They donate their dollars and open their hearts to strangers from near and afar…and they keep on giving.   Temecula truly has HEART!  Thank you from the bottom of ours to yours!
