Since 1983, we have provided free short-term housing in volunteer host homes and donated apartments for families and friends of patients seeking care at Boston-area healthcare organizations. Hospitality Homes is unique among Boston-area hospital housing programs because of its host home model, and because it is the only local program open to all families, regardless of income, nationality, age, diagnosis, or treatment facility.

Many of the world's best doctors are in Boston. We are lucky because we can visit them when we have a problem. Kids and adults who live far away from Boston have to travel here to see the best doctors. You can welcome them into your home while they are in Boston and offer them a comfy and relaxing place to sleep. Sometimes our guests are children who are sick or who are coming to Boston because their parent or sister/brother is sick. Children always come with an adult. Sometimes our guests are adults because their child is in the hospital or they need to see the Boston doctor themselves. This is a great chance to meet people from different parts of the world and a very easy way to help people in a very special way.
