Celebrating 10 Years of Transforming Lives

Nora’s Home celebrated 10 years! 2023 brought this HUGE milestone to Nora’s Home after the home has been in operation since 2013 in Houston. Since opening, we have 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 60,000 nights stayed, AND welcomed over 1,600 guests!

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