The new Hunter Hospitality Family House is now open and ready to offer free hospital accommodation to parents with children.
The Family House, which opened earlier than expected, is part of the nonprofit Hunter Hospitality House, founded in 2011, a recent version of the states nonprofit. Co-founders Jeff and Tracy Willard established the charity in memory of their toddler son, Hunter, who died at the age of 16 days in 1991. It provides free accommodation for patients and loved ones who need to stay close. from a Port Huron hospital.
Hunter Hospitality House has two bed and breakfast style homes adjacent to each Port Huron hospital. The new family home is a detached house designed to provide parents with children with a “much more private retreat,” the statement said.
Guests will find a fully equipped kitchen and laundry room, bedrooms for up to six people, a crib and free hygiene products.
âWe couldn’t have opened the Family Home without the generosity of the community,â Tracy Willard said in the statement. âMany companies donated their time and services. They believe in our mission, and we are very grateful for their help in this expansion.
A groundbreaking ceremony for Hunter Hospitality Family House will take place on December 7, which marks the organization’s 10th anniversary and what would have been Hunter’s 30th anniversary.
