Hosts For Hospitals Needs Your Help

Dear LSNA neighbor,

We’ve received a request from HOSTS for HOSPITALS. The Logan Square Neighborhood Association is reaching out to our community to ask for their help, to meet an urgent and growing need. At this time of the Coronavirus, a large number of patients with critical medical situations still must travel to town for non-elective, out-patient care: families with sick children; adult and pediatric oncology patients; pregnant moms with medical complications are among those who do not have a lodging option.We are in desperate need of private setting accommodations. 

HOSTS for HOSPITALS now asks that anyone with a private, furnished lodging setting contact them to potentially help patient-families in need. This can be a carriage house, an in-law suite, an unused apartment, or even a home where the an owner is away for a period of time. This will enable the users to maintain social distancing protocols.

Most importantly, the Ronald McDonald Houses are no longer accepting new families, and the Hope Family Lodge for cancer patients closed March 27, with 30-plus patients who were at this facility being forced to leave.

For 20 years the Greater Philadelphia non-profit HOSTS for HOSPITALS has provided lodging and support at volunteer Host-homes for patients and their families who travel here for specialized medical care. 

If you know of such a resource please contact Outreach Coordinator Cathy Davis at 484-380-2999, or  ('

Thank you,

Dennis Boylan
