Welcome To Your Home
Away From Home

Who Can Stay?
Welcoming Our Distant Neighbors

Our doors are open to guests who live outside of Saginaw and are either a patient or have a loved one receiving medical treatment at one of six Saginaw hospitals. Our aim is to offer a peaceful retreat where you can find strength and comfort during your medical journey.

Our room rate is modestly set at $40 per night. However, we strongly believe that everyone deserves access to our services, no matter their financial situation. For those unable to pay the full rate, applications for a reduced rate can be completed for consideration.

Community Driven, Family Focused

As an independent non-profit organization, we operate solely through the generosity of our community. We are not owned by any of the hospitals and depend on donations from businesses, foundations, grateful guests, hospitals, and individuals. Every dollar donated to us goes directly into providing comfort and support to our guests.

We are proud to be a refuge for families with loved ones receiving treatment at the following locations:
Decades of Hospitality

In 2022 alone, we had the privilege to serve 1,215 patients and their families hailing from 64 counties in Michigan and 28 different states. Our reach is global – we have been a home away from home for guests from Mexico, Brazil, Canada, Korea, England, and Australia.
