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.

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.
