10th Anniversary!

Nora’s Home is celebrating 10 years! This new year brings a new milestone to Nora’s Home!  The home has been in operation since 2013 and has welcomed transplant patients and their families from 38 states and 4 countries. In these years we have grown from 16 guest suites to 32 guest suites, celebrated over 50,000 nights stayed, AND welcomed over 1,570 guests!

Nora’s Home is a haven for many and is often called a “home away from home.” We couldn’t be happier for this golden year and look forward to many years to come in our future! Stay tuned this year for guest stories, videos, celebrations, flashback photos and more!


Celebrate 10 years with Nora’s Home!

Bill and Virginia have been guests at Nora’s Home over 5 years and those years have been packed with good memories and good visits. Their experience has been so positive that they ultimately decided to first meet Bill’s organ donor’s family at Nora’s Home and show them where they stay during Bill’s treatments. See how that experience and their stays at Nora’s Home has transformed their lives.
