Hosts for Hospitals provides free lodging and support at volunteer-host homes as a caring response to the housing needs of patients and their families who come to the Greater Philadelphia area for specialized medical care.

Accommodations: Participants stay in the private homes of volunteer hosts near the Abramson Cancer Center (Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center campuses) and in the surrounding suburbs.

Accommodations vary from host to host. Guests share household facilities with host families and are matched with host-homes chosen to meet each guest family's specific lodging needs. All homes have been visited by Hosts for Hospitals program staff to ensure guest safety and comfort.

Guests: Families, spouses, and friends of patients from all Philadelphia-area medical institutions. Patients are considered on a case-by-case basis and may be required to be accompanied by a family member or other support person.

Cost: There is no fee, but tax-deductible donations to the program are welcomed.

Length of stay: For whatever length of time lodging is needed in association with a patient receiving medical care at the hospital.

Availability: With more than 200 hosts, this program has a highly successful placement rate. While same-day placement is often possible, guests should apply with as much lead time as possible to ensure placement.
