We provided temporary housing to our first young adult guest family in August of 2011. In April of 2014, DHOH opened its hospitality house for AYAs in Houston’s Museum District. Since then, thousands of nights of lodging have been provided to hundreds of young adult cancer fighters and caregivers.
DHOH is a warm, comfortable, temporary home and community where AYAs gather, to heal, to dream, to share, to engage in life, and support each other while navigating cancer’s many challenges.
Our Home at a Glance:
Turn-key ready, bed and breakfast-style, temporary housing for up to 4 families (patient and caregiver) at a time. Each family’s accommodations include a private bath and guest room (or rooms).
Based on room availability, guest stays are offered from a minimum of 5 nights to a maximum stay of 2 months. (Extensions may be available but can not be guaranteed in advance.)
All patient guests are required to have a caregiver reside with them for the entire length of their stay at DHOH.
Shared living spaces at the house include a large, well-equipped kitchen, spacious dining room, ample living room, game room, library, art room, multi-purpose meeting room, media room, and laundry facility. We have lovely outside patio areas to enjoy too!
A continental-style breakfast is offered daily, and the kitchen is available throughout the day for guests to prepare their own meals at will. Condiments and simple kitchen supplies (various kinds of milk, flour, margarine, sweeteners, salad dressing, and spices) are made available for guests’ shared use.
Patient guests must be 18 to 39 years old. Caregivers must be 21 or older.
Med Center parking and ride assistance for appointments.
