Welcome Home Annual Fund

Established in 2021, the Welcome Home Annual Fund at Nora’s Home is a way to support the ongoing operational needs of our facility and bridges the gap between the true cost of a night’s stay and what guests pay. Guest stay revenues do not cover the entire operating budget of Nora’s Home: our guests pay an average of $25/night. The Welcome Home Annual Fund makes up that crucial difference.

Gifts to the Welcome Home Annual Fund ensure the financial health and longevity of Nora’s Home. This fund provides for the items that create a home – 24-hour staff and housekeeping; functional goods such as kitchenware, linens and toilet paper; sanitation protocols that make the home safe; and professional services that keep the house running – as well as the resources necessary to secure our future.

Your gift will provide financial assistance to guests in need and will ensure the doors of Nora’s Home always remain open. Every gift, regardless of size, makes a true difference to Nora’s Home, our guests and their caregivers. Your gift is an expression of confidence in the home and assists in maintaining the quality and affordability of a stay at the home.
