“Describe Caring House in one word? Tranquility. But if I had more words, I was going to say heaven on earth.”

– Former Guest

Caring House provides patients at Duke Cancer Institute with peace of mind through affordable housing, a healing environment, and a positive and supportive community. We consistently hear from physicians, social workers, and most importantly, from our guests that their time at Caring House was integral to their mental, physical and emotional well-being during their cancer treatments.

We rely on the generosity of many individuals, foundations, businesses and corporations to help us keep our nightly rates low ($45 per night) for our guests. Your gift is greatly appreciated!
