Lighting the Way For
Families in Need
In 1984, with the unwavering support of volunteers from the Junior League of Saginaw, HHH of Saginaw was established as a tax-exempt, non-profit organization.
Thanks to the continuous generosity of our guests, individual donors, businesses, and foundations, we have grown and expanded our reach. Today, we can warmly welcome up to 68 out-of-town guests every night across our two locations, ensuring that no one has to worry about a place to rest while their loved one receives medical care.
Barely a year after our establishment, in 1985, we played a significant role in founding the National Association of Hospital Hospitality Houses (now known as the Hospital Hospitality Network, or HHN) with the aid of a $15,000 grant from the Wickson-Link Foundation. This network enables Hospitality Houses across the country to develop similar programs and services in their own communities.
With over 125 member Hospitality Houses, the HHN provides a platform for all of us to share resources, exchange ideas, and create better experiences for the families we serve. As a proud and certified member of the HHN, HHH of Saginaw remains steadfast in our dedication to providing lodging and supportive services in a caring environment for families receiving medical care away from home.
