Mission Statement

To offer temporary, minimal-cost lodging to parents and families of children receiving medical care away from home; to provide families with a quiet haven during stressful times; a place of comfort, hope and emotional support; to serve families regardless of race, gender, religious or political affiliation, and never turn away any family due to an inability to pay.

Principal Services and Purpose
Children's Hope is dedicated to providing families with children in any community hospital with overnight accommodations in a family-centered, home-like, supportive environment. Six private family bedrooms with baths are available at Children's Hope, as well as shared areas including a kitchen with a fully stocked food pantry, a library with Internet access, a relaxing television lounge and laundry facilities. Children's Hope is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to registered house guest families. One full-time salaried executive director, one full-time house manager, five part-time hourly night managers and an active volunteer program keep the facility running smoothly while caring for the families.

Description

More than a close and convenient shelter, Childrens Hope Hospitality House is a quiet respite for those trying to manage the serious illness of their child in a strange and foreign hospital environment. Located on the campus of Lutheran Hospital, Childrens Hope offers six private sleep-rooms with baths, a fully equipped kitchen, a stocked pantry, TV lounge, playroom, reading room with computers, and meditation room for when quiet moments are needed.
