Mission Statement

Nora’s Home offers transplant patients and their families an affordable place to stay where they can find support and share experiences with others, in the comfort of a home-like environment

Description

Patients suffering from end stage organ disease and facing the need for life saving transplant surgery must deal with many challenges. Medical care often requires them to travel far from home and many patients awaiting transplant, under-going surgery or having follow-up care must stay in Houston for many months. During this difficult time, and in addition to their tremendous medical expenses, patients and their families are burdened with the high cost of lodging, the loneliness of being away from their loved ones and the fear of losing their jobs, homes and way of life.

Nora’s Home is a new, freestanding facility near the Texas Medical Center at 8300 El Rio Street. Built with the specific needs of transplant patients and families in mind it includes: 32 private bedrooms and baths, a fully equipped kitchen, a meditation room, exercise room, warm and inviting common spaces, an education center and free shuttle services to the medical center.
