Our house accommodates 12 families each night in private bedrooms with baths. The House also includes a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, play room and lounge area.
To qualify for a room, the family must have a child who is 21 years or younger and receiving care in Westchester County. There is often a wait list for a room. Rooms are given based on the critical nature of the patient and distance from the family’s home to the hospital.
Although our actual cost is approximately $183.00 per night per family, we only ask for $15.00 per night per family to stay at our house. We never turn a family away due to inability to pay.
Our House is accessible to our families 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. The office is open seven days per week from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
