HOSTS for HOSPITALS (HfH) is a nonprofit agency providing lodging and support at volunteer host-homes for $10/night/patient-family as a caring response to the housing needs of the ever-increasing number of patients and their families who come to Greater Philadelphia for specialized medical care.
On an ongoing basis HfH staff and hosts are available to make presentations at all Greater Philadelphia places of worship about the opportunity to host and/or spread word about the lodging needs of patient-families.
Currently each night about 20 patient-families are receiving lodging at a host-home. Many more host-homes are needed near Center City, throughout Greater Philadelphia, and especially a) for patients or support people unable or not allowed to do stairs, at homes with an elevator or minimal stairs, b) for children with compromised immune systems, at private ‘Snowbird home’ or ‘In-law suite’ settings and c) for families arriving from China with children to be receiving life-saving eye surgery, with hosts who speak Mandarin.
The members of our congregation are invited to be part of the collective, community effort to help such patient-families in need. For more information please contact HfH: 484-380-2999,
