Who We Are

Founded in 1992, Caring House provides comfortable, supportive, and affordable housing to Duke Cancer Institute adult outpatients and their caregivers. It is a 12,900 square foot home that has 18 private rooms, each with a private bath, phone, and television. Guests are encouraged to bring their caregivers, who may be a spouse, other family member, or close friend, during their stay.

We are pleased to be a part of the world-class continuum of care offered at Duke Cancer Institute and look forward to many more years of service to our guests.

While it is difficult to quantify the benefit of a stay at Caring House to our guests, 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.
