Jessica’s House Gives Families a Hope-Filled Place to Grieve

Nelson wanted to help provide a place where others in similar situations could turn. In 2012, she convinced Emanuel Medical Center to open Jessica’s House, a home where people could join support groups and participate in activities together. Today, Jessica’s House is a part of EMC Health, a nonprofit formed by Covenant Ministries of Benevolence when the hospital was sold in 2014.
