Kevin Guest House Grows

The Expansion Campaign for Kevin Guest House

Kevin Guest House is a home away from home for patients and families traveling to Buffalo for medical care. In order to better serve the guests who seek lodging, we launched our first capital campaign, doubling our capacity, providing a handicap accessible house, and creating spaces for larger families. 

Our guests still need your help.

Insure that no family is turned away by helping us complete our campus expansion.

No gift is too small. Become a Hospitality Hero with just a $5 gift today.
