Thousands of families throughout Texas, the United States, and the world travel to the Texas Medical Center in Houston each year for pediatric cancer treatments. Unfortunately, despite providing access to some of the best medical treatment in the world, there is a critical lack of affordable temporary housing within the Texas Medical Center area for families with children undergoing cancer treatment. These devastating cancer diagnoses and the unanticipated costs related to seeking treatment can present daunting financial challenges for any family. The centerpiece of the Chance for Hope Foundation’s support services mission is the Chance for Hope Residence.
The Chance for Hope Foundation signed its first apartment lease in November 2014 and now has multiple residences providing over 1,800 nights of free lodging annually. The Chance for Hope Residences are one-bedroom, fully-furnished apartments in the Texas Medical Center, provided at no cost to families traveling to Houston for pediatric cancer treatment. The residences are provided on a first come first served basis, and offer a shuttle service that provides quick access to Texas Children’s Hospital and the University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital and Proton Therapy Center.
The Foundation plans to expand this program to open additional residences as funding permits. Your donations will allow us to help even more families who are in need of our support.
