A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Juan is a seven-year-old boy from Texas whose family has been to our House several times over the past few years, often for months at a time. Juan was born with intestinal problems, and eventually received a transplant in June 2016. While Juan was cared for in the hospital, his mom, Sabrina, dad, Francisco, and little brother, Cameron stayed in our House, where they felt the support of our staff, volunteers, and the other families. They were able to solely focus on Juan’s progress, rather than worrying about making dinner after a long day in a hospital room, or the financial burden of paying for a hotel room each night. Once Juan was discharged, he played with Cameron in the toy room, and interacted with other children going through similar experiences. Sabrina is forever grateful to have a home away from home when Juan has a check-up in Omaha. “What the House provides is not only the volunteers and the employees, it’s the other families too. You can really understand where they’re coming from and they understand where you’re coming from. It’s so nice, and it’s really heartfelt. You need that kind of support. You don’t feel like you’re coming back alone and in a bubble, starting the next day over with the same thing. Being here changes everything.”
