  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 118 people are interested

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.

  • At this time we may only accept meals that have been prepared by restaurants or caterers, as they are require to follow Food Safety Regulations.
  • You will be responsible for selecting a restaurant/caterer and coordinating on a menu. Some sponsors will select the menu themselves while others allow our families to select their personal meals from a menu provided.
  • All meals will require delivery or drop-off, as we are unable to pick up any carry out orders on your behalf.
  • Most evenings, you would be serving 10-15 people.

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.
