Gift of Life Family House serves as a “home away from home” for transplant patients & their families

For more than 44 years, Gift of Life Donor Program—a federally designated non profit organ procurement organization—has served as the link in Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, and Delaware, connecting patients awaiting organ and tissue transplants and those who donate these precious gifts of life.

Since 1974, Gift of Life Donor Program has coordinated more than 46,000 organs for transplant and approximately one million tissue transplants that have resulted from Gift of Life donors.

Recognizing the critical need for affordable accommodations and supportive services for transplant families, Gift of Life Donor Program and the Transplant Foundation collaborated to open a unique lodging facility for transplant candidates, recipients, family members, and living donors. That facility, Gift of Life Family House, officially opened its doors to transplant families in July 2011 in the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia.
