Captain Joseph House Foundation has been named Bonneville Seattle’s Charity of the Month for November, for lending support to Gold Star families of our military’s fallen war heroes.

Their mission is simple, yet meets a deeply needed level of compassion that has been missing for those who have been most impacted by their loss. With volunteer and paid staff, donation funding and inspiration, the Foundation ensures a place for families of the Fallen to gather for respite and provides a continuum of care for their personal healing.

The respite retreat takes place in a beautiful 1910 Tudor-style craftsman house located in Port Angeles, Washington. Captain Joseph House became a concept following the death of the foundation’s creator , Betsy Reed Schultz, whose son died in Afghanistan on May 29, 2011, on Memorial Day weekend.

Captain Schultz, a decorated Army Green Beret detachment commander, was mortally wounded leading his troops when struck down by an IED.

While confronting her own grief, mourning her loss, and spending time with the families of his team, Betsy decided the inn would be a perfect place for families to gather at a future time following the death of their loved one.
