Christine Brennan has been part of the Joshua’s House Board almost since the project started and has agreed to oversee the Spiritual Care component to ensure that all residents of Joshua’s House will have access to whatever level of spiritual care they seek.

Christine is a Sutter Health Technical Support Manager with 22 years of experience managing a staff of 21 to support data integration between Electronic Medical Record system and other ancillary systems. When asked why she is involved with Joshua’s House, she said, “I want to work alongside Marlene and support this great effort to establish an organization to house the homeless during the end of their lives.”

She also volunteers at Loaves and Fishes, is a hospice volunteer with the Sutter Care At Home and serves on the Homeless Assistance Resource Team (HART), Winter Shelter for the Homeless (2022).

“My role has always been to support Marlene in whatever capacity she needs in order to fulfill her vision for Joshua’s House,” she added. “My compassion for the homeless and for hospice care, along with my strong faith is what I bring to this Board.”

Christine shared that she hopes Joshua’s House will be able to fill all their beds each day and provide excellent quality of care to their homeless guests. “My hope is to also see Joshua’s House expand on the West Coast,” she said.
