We operated on very strict cleaning guidelines prior to COVID-19, and have updated our protocol in line with CDC recommendations to ensure that families and staff are coming into a safe environment.

Hope has a Home

The sudden illness or injury of a child is something no family should have to navigate alone. Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is here to help.

When the expense of an extended hotel stay is not possible, Children’s Hope House intercedes as a place of rest and rejuvenation. We provide a night’s stay, a warm meal, and an uplifting spirit in their time of need.

Stories of hope

We exist to serve families in need of a place to stay, without expecting anything in return. These families have more than paid us back in kind words and beautiful stories of hope.
