It's so simple!
Homes with Heart pairs holiday-home owners generous enough to offer an otherwise empty week in their property with families desperately in need of time away because of illness. We do the administration so that careworkers don't have to.
A little of your time could make all the difference in the world.
What a very special gift you have given us all
We spend a lot of time fundraising to pay for treatment and adapting the house for Ollie’s wheelchair, so we wouldn’t have been able to get away otherwise.
We had a fantastic time in Cornwall, the apartment was amazing.
Welcome to Homes with Heart, a unique organization which lets holiday home owners donate spare weeks in their property, so that families who desperately need a break – young families where either a child or parent is terminally ill or has a life-limiting disease - can have a respite holiday.
Charities cannot generally accept the offer of a private holiday home because they have no system to manage it. We are the only organization which allows homeowners to ‘bank’ a week and healthcare professionals to ‘withdraw’. They can refer their families for a stress-free holiday together or for a short respite break, to make the most of remission, to take a break from constant treatment, or to spend some quality family time if the prognosis is poor. We can match each holiday with care and flexibility with YOUR help.
Adam's Hats holiday programme was transferred to Homes with Heart so that we might continue to support children and their families with life-limiting illness.
Homes with Heart are proud to have been asked to see Adam's work continue and thrive. If you want to know more about work that the Adam Hay Fund does, please see www.adamshats.org.
