Hosts For Humanity
When Jenny Owens' newborn son Max was hospitalized for Congenital Diaphramatic Hernia, she met a woman from Tennessee who traveled to Baltimore to care for a loved one at the same hospital. That encounter sparked Jenny's mission to launch Hosts for Humanity, a service pairing welcoming families with medical travelers in need. And it's not just financial need. Just when they need it most, traveling family members are able to connect with people who care and go home to a home and not a hotel.
