For those of you who have not had the opportunity to visit, here are some of our favorite spots in “The House that Love Built®.” From our newly renovated guest kitchens to the Magic Room, our House has beautiful spaces designed to best serve our guest families. Here are the highlights.
Upon entering our House and making your way through the lobby, you are greeted by our cozy and welcoming Great Room. This space offers plenty of comfortable couches and chairs that surround our fireplace where our families can spend time together after a long day and visit with our Therapy pets.
Art Therapy & Education Center
In our Art Therapy & Education Center, guest families are able to unwind and relax through our Expressive Therapy program. Skilled art therapists visit a few times each week and guide our families to a place of healing and hope through the creative process or they can use various art supplies from our Open Art cabinets.
Our Chapel serves as a quiet space where families of all faiths can reflect on their journeys. The Chapel also houses the Friendly Loom, where anyone staying at the House can weave their own stories and messages of hope in with those of past and present guest families.
The Computer Lab is a room with desk space and computers where parents can keep up with work and children can work on homework and play games. Our Computer Lab is available for use at all hours.
Our Game Room has plenty of arcade-style and video games along with a ping pong table to help our families relax and spend time together. During stressful times, our guest families need time to unwind and have fun, and playing in our Game Room is a great way to do so.
In our newly renovated Guest Kitchens, families have pantry and refrigerator space to store any food they may want during the duration of their stay. They are also able to cook meals for themselves using the stoves and ovens. Shared pantries provide complimentary staples like mac n’ cheese, pasta and red sauce and other delicious food options.
Our Guest Rooms provide a comfortable space for our guest families to rest at the end of the day. While they may not be the most exciting rooms in the House, they are definitely the most important because they give our families a safe space to rest and recharge during difficult times.
Now you have seen some of the reasons we think our House is so special and how it truly helps us keep families close! If you would like to schedule a tour to see more, please contact Bridget Kesner, Development Director at 414-935-6511.
