Widely recognized as a world leader in pediatric Hospital Housing and Respite Housing, Believe In Tomorrow developed the first pediatric respite facilities in the United States more than a decade ago. Its hospital housing program continues to forge new inroads, with two of the top facilities in the country.
Since 1986, thousands of critically ill children and their families have used our respite homes free of charge to renew their energy and spirit throughout their child’s exhausting medical treatment. Believe In Tomorrow opened its first permanent pediatric respite facility in 1996, the Believe In Tomorrow House on Fenwick Island. Since then, the foundation has acquired both ocean and mountain resort properties.
Recognizing the ever growing need for these unique and meaningful programs, Believe In Tomorrow is dedicated to the national expansion of our respite facilities. The foundation currently operates five respite properties. The newest facility, the Believe In Tomorrow House at Pinnacle Falls, opened in December 2010.
Since 1993, the Believe In Tomorrow’s Children’s House at Johns Hopkins has provided accommodations to families,
traveling from throughout the United States and the world, seeking medical treatment at the internationally famous Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. The Believe In Tomorrow Children’s House at Johns Hopkins serves as a model for pediatric hospital housing in the United States and sits on the grounds of Johns Hopkins Hospital. The door to the house is only steps away from an entrance to the hospital.
“The long weekend was so relaxing and peaceful. Knowing that we could get away from the stress of having a child with cancer, and just be a family enjoying our time together was something we will remember for a long time." - Family of Taylor, age 3, battling leukemia
In 2006, Believe In Tomorrow opened the door on a long anticipated and highly unique hospital housing facility. The Believe In Tomorrow House at St. Casimir serves as the first stand alone hospital housing facility in the country that caters exclusively to pediatric, bone marrow transplant patients. It stands as the first and only facility of its kind.
