Gift of Life Family House serves as a "home away from home" for transplant patients and their families by providing temporary, affordable lodging, meals and supportive services to those who travel to Philadelphia for transplant-related care.
The transplant process usually requires weeks or months of treatment and long-term access to physicians and hospitals for follow up care. Many long term guests cannot afford even the minimum payment of $40.00 per night. The Family House is committed to providing a "home away from home" for all eligible families regardless of their ability to pay. This requires a collaborative and community-focused approach to funding. The Adopt-A-Family Program provides support for those families who are unable to pay the nightly fee – especially for an extended period of time. In addition, funds raised through the Adopt-A-Family Program are used to offset the difference between the actual operating costs ($160) and the amount families are asked to pay ($40).
