Papa joe's house


The Joe Beretta Foundation exists to meet practical needs of advanced heart failure patient and their families.  One of the largest needs is housing.  Our goal is to build "Papa Joe's House", a home in Nashville, TN where patients & caregivers can find peace, hope & rest during their advanced heart failure journey.    Ultimately, we hope to build several houses in strategic cities across the country.  We partnered with experts across many fields to design Papa Joe's House with VAD specific needs in mind.  Great effort was taken to provide care for the caregivers, a critical part of our mission.
