Support the Adopt-a-Family Program

Our Adopt-a-Family Program ensures that no family is turned away due to inability to pay.


Gift of Life Family House serves organ transplant patients and their families who have traveled to Philadelphia for transplant-related care. We provide 30 high-quality, comfortable rooms for the minimal cost of $40 a night, while our Adopt-a-Family Program ensures that no family is turned away due to inability to pay.

Every $40 you can give today provides another night of safe shelter and caring community to a transplant family. Transplant surgery comes with many costs not covered by insurance, and 1 in 5 families can’t afford even our small nightly fee. We have never turned anyone away for lack of funds, and with your help, we never will.

Your tax-deductible gift to the Adopt-a-Family Program will help cover the room cost for a transplant family — $40 for one night, $80 for two nights, $120 for a full weekend, or longer. Every gift adds up to a peaceful “home away from home” in a time of incredible stress.

The Adopt-A-Family Program is supported in part by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows – New Jersey
