We are a committed group of volunteers and staff who work to form community around families who have traveled to the mid-south to receive medical care for their children. We exist to support, serve, and care for families facing the serious or long-term illness of a child. Our approach is active and holistic. We come alongside families and provide practical, emotional, spiritual, and respite care. We step in to the life of a strained family and commit to a relationship extending beyond the illness of the child – wherever the journey may lead. We serve families by feeding them, providing lodging, helping with transportation, inviting them into our homes for gatherings, counseling, and staying in close contact once they return home. Recognized as a non-profit in 2005, Habitat for Hope has served over 450 families. Our team’s personal experience with illnesses of loved ones creates deep empathy and compassion for those we serve. Our vision is to expand our services across the nation to other communities, and to create a facility in Memphis that families from all over the world will access for respite, hospice and long-term lodging.
