Spring Flower Sale

Help support our Guest Scholarships!

Each spring, Joy’s House hosts a flower sale that funds the Guest Scholarship program. This year’s event is presented by our friends of Joy’s House, Kelle, Erin and Maria. These flowers are gorgeous year after year, and we encourage you to consider purchasing your flats, baskets and herbs from Joy’s House! Your flowers will help provide adult day services for families in need of financial support to keep their families together.
