Sponsor a Family Supper:

Work alone or together with your friends, family, colleagues, or community to coordinate a night of supper for the families staying at The Children’s House at Johns Hopkins. This is especially nice after having to be over at the hospital all day, and coming back to a warm meal is just what our families need! The family dinner program helps to ease some of the stress they are facing.

  • Due to Covid and the sensitive population we serve, at this time we are limiting in-person groups to a maximum of 4 people. All attendees must be fully vaccinated and ages 15 years and up.
  • Bring ingredients and prepare the meal here on site! We have all the kitchen equipment, utensils, and serving dishes you might need.
  • Not a good cook? No worries, a catered in/delivered meal from a restaurant is appreciated and enjoyed too!
  • Supper is served from 6pm-7pm. This would be an evening commitment.
  • Most evenings, you would be serving 15-25 people.
  • We will email you with more details and available dates!

About The Believe In Tomorrow Children's House at Johns Hopkins

Location:

1915 McElderry Street, Baltimore, MD 21205, US

Mission Statement

The mission of The Children's House at Johns Hopkins is to provide a family-centered, supportive residence for children receiving medical care at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center. It is our purpose to keep families together in the midst of medical crisis, to reduce stress and to promote self-help and mutual support.

Description

The Children's House at Johns Hopkins is a four-level, fifteen bedroom facility located directly across the street from the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The house serves as a warm "home-away-from-home" for families while their children are undergoing treatment at local area hospitals, including The Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

The Children's House, a project of Believe In Tomorrow National Children's Foundation (formerly the Grant-A-Wish Foundation), was established in January 1993. More than 400 companies and 3,000 individual volunteers joined forces to build the house, making the construction much like a modern-day barn raising. The Children's House continues to rely on the support of many individuals and corporations to operate the facility, and as such, exists as a testimony to the true spirit of volunteerism.
