Journey to Hope Campaign

A year long celebration and fundraising effort in honor of the courageous families who stay at the Howie's House


It’s hard to believe that 10 years ago, Gift of Life Howie’s House officially opened its doors to welcome home transplant families.  Since then, we have provided comfort and hope to thousands of families along their transplant journeys.

To mark this special milestone, we are kicking off a year-long 10th anniversary celebration and fundraising effort. We’re calling it our Journey to Hope Campaign in honor of the courageous families we serve every day.

10 Years of Caring

In our 10-year history, we have provided over 70,000 nights of lodging and care as well as 250,000 meals plus household supplies, transportation and counseling to over 2,800 transplant families.

We have steadfastly maintained our $40 nightly room fee — though our actual costs are now as much as $175 per night — and have never turned away a family who couldn’t pay. All told, we have provided over $10 million in subsidized care to transplant families since we opened.

All of this is made possible by the generosity of individuals, companies, organizations, foundations, and friends like you who believe in our mission and know that we are good stewards of their generous contributions. I am so very grateful!

Our Journey to Hope needs YOU!

You can support our journey ahead and help us to continue offering affordable care to transplant families by supporting our campaign. In doing so, you will also be helping to ensure that no family is turned away for lack of ability to pay.
