Mission Statement

The mission of Nora's Home is to offer affordable lodging for pre-transplant and post-transplant patients and their families who travel to any of the Texas Medical Center transplant centers. The first of its kind in Houston, it provides care, education and support for transplant patients and their families in a loving, 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 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. 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: 16 private bedrooms and baths, a fully equipped kitchen, a great room, a chapel, a community room, an education center and free shuttle services to the medical center.
