At Kathy’s House, it is our goal to provide a supportive and comfortable environment to all who are seeking accommodation during medical treatment in the greater Milwaukee area, regardless of a family’s financial situation.
Often times, the medical treatment a guest experiences becomes a financial burden for their family. For a guest undergoing a prolonged treatment such as a bone marrow transplant, the patient will typically be in the hospital for 2-4 weeks followed by 90 days of outpatient care. The cost for a family to stay in a hotel in the Milwaukee area for this time period could easily exceed $10,000.
Kathy’s House is a quality lodging option for families and may be the only option for families experiencing financial hardship. While many guests do make a sizable donation to help cover the costs associated with their stay, some are able to only make a small contribution.
In order to not turn people away, we need to secure funding that is earmarked for families facing financial hardship. Sponsoring a family is an excellent way to directly impact someone’s life for the better. Sponsorship levels include the following:
- $50 = 1 night lodging
- $100 = 2 nights lodging
- $250 = 5 nights lodging
- $500 = 10 nights lodging
- $1,000 = 20 nights lodging
