Host Stories

Hospitality Homes Hosts are volunteers who open their homes to provide a clean and comfortable place to sleep and access to a bathroom. Many hosts also offer limited kitchen use.

WHO ARE OUR HOSTS?

Hospitality hosts do not provide meals or transportation. A few of them live within walking distance of the major hospitals; most live in areas with access to public transportation (subway or buses). Hospitality Homes charges no fees. We rely on donations from guests and others to sustain the program.

Hospitality Homes is available to people of all races, nationalities, and faiths, provided the guest:

  • Lives far enough away from the hospital so that commuting is difficult (>50 miles)
  • Can provide help translating if English is not the first language of the family members.
  • Has a permanent home to return to.
  • Is an important support person for the patient.
  • Is not likely to put the host family at risk.
