Stay With Us

Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is a non-profit pediatric hospital hospitality house located on the Lutheran Hospital campus. Our services are available to families with a hospitalized child in any Fort Wayne medical facility.  The mission of Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is to offer temporary, minimal-cost lodging to parents and families of children receiving medical care away from home; to provide families a place of comfort, hope and emotional support; to serve families regardless of race, gender, religious or political affiliation, and never turn away any family due to an inability to pay.

We have Hope House on the Lutheran, Dupont and St. Joseph Hospital campuses.  Our homes offers private bedrooms, a community kitchen with a fully stocked pantry, family rooms, and laundry facilities.  We provide these basic needs to families while keeping parents just steps away from their critically ill child.  Families need not worry about meals to plan, a bed to sleep in or transportation arrangements to the hospital. By providing these services we help families stay financially and emotionally sound during times of great uncertainty. As a result, our Houses provide a home away from home which allows families similarly situated to derive strength and hope from one another.  Referrals are made by hospital staff and accommodations are based on availability.
