Support the Adopt-A-Family Program

Our Adopt-a-Family Program ensures that no family is turned away due to inability to pay.


Gift of Life Howie’s House provides transplant families with home-like accommodations, meals, transportation, and a supportive community. Guests are only asked to pay a small nightly fee of $40, despite actual costs exceeding $185 per night. The Adopt-A-Family Program helps subsidize the costs of staying at the Howie’s House to keep our room fees low. The program also covers costs for families who cannot afford the nightly fee, ensuring no family is ever turned away due to an inability to pay.

Every $40 you can give today helps provide another night of safe shelter and caring community to a transplant family.

Transplant surgery comes with many costs not covered by insurance, and 1 in 5 families can’t afford even our small nightly fee. We have never turned anyone away for lack of funds, and with your help, we never will.

Your tax-deductible gift today will help cover the room cost for a transplant family — $40 for one night, $80 for two nights, $120 for a full weekend, or longer. Every gift adds up to a peaceful “home away from home” in a time of incredible stress.

The Adopt-A-Family Program is supported in part by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows – New Jersey
