Since 1979, The Boston House: Hope and Healing for Children with Cancer has served as a home away from home for children with cancer and their families while their children receive the best of care at Dana-Farber Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. As an essential part of their overall care, The House provides its guests with no-cost and convenient accommodations in a safe and comfortable home-like setting. Here, children, families, and caregivers find comfort and support among staff, volunteers, and other families facing the life-changing realities of childhood cancer and other life-threatening hematological illnesses.

If you are trying to determine if you are eligible to stay at The Boston House, please call us between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 617-734-3333 or email us at

Welcome to The House. Since 1979, families have called these rooms "home" while receiving the best pediatric cancer care available at Boston Children's Hospital and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
