Critical Operations Campaign
Kathy’s House has been able to remain open to fulfill its mission despite the challenges posed by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
We had to dramatically increase our safeguards and purchase a record amount of cleaning supplies, paper products and personal protective equipment. The number of visitors, volunteers, staff and guests was reduced to ensure safety and new protocols were adopted.
What’s more, because of the current health crisis, revenue we would typically receive from guest contributions, fundraising events and grants have significantly decreased.
That is why your support for our patients and guests is more important than ever.
It costs roughly $90 per night, per room to operate Kathy’s House. On average, the guests that stay at Kathy’s House donate about $30 per night, but no one is turned away if they cannot make a donation.
Your gift to our urgent Critical Operations Campaign helps close the gap and ensure that Kathy’s House will continue to provide a home away from home for patients and families facing a medical crisis.
“We’re at a critical juncture. Cancer and other serious medical crises do not stop because of COVID-19. We want to make sure that we continue to be here for families who need access to advanced medical care here in Milwaukee.”Patty Metropulos, Kathy’s House President and CEO
Your gift ensures that we can maintain a “home away from home” for those who need it. Thank you for your support!
