The Compassion House Foundation was established in 1998 with the vision to build a facility supporting women with breast cancer from Northern Alberta during diagnosis, treatment and the early stages of recovery.
In early 2001, the Key to Compassion Capital Campaign was launched. With the generous support of the Edmonton community, and donors across the province, the facility was under construction by September of that year.
In 2012 construction began on the expansion and on Sept. 9, 2013 we re-opened the beautiful expanded and renovated Sorrentino's Compassion House.
The home is named Sorrentino's Compassion House in recognition of the Capital Campaign support of the Sorrentino's Restaurant Group and the Saccomanno and Rago families.
Since opening in September 2002, we have provided a haven for hundreds of women with breast cancer and their families. We have welcomed guests from over 170 different communities in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.
Sorrentino's Compassion House is supported by the Compassion House Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization. Our mission is to provide sanctuary and support to women with breast cancer within and beyond our four walls. The Foundation relies on donations to operate Sorrentino's Compassion House.
