HALO HOUSE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Halo House was founded in 2009 by MD Anderson’s Dr. Nathan Fowler because he was keenly aware of this need. For the past six + years, Halo House has been operating out of ten leased apartements. This has worked well as an interim step, but it was never contemplated to be the long-term solution. Apartments are provided to eligible patients for $20/day; an amount substantially lower than area hotels ($139-$229/night.) To date over 240 families have been served with over 15,000 days of housing. Every day there are between 85 and 100 people on our waiting list.
Due to this critical shortage of clean, affordable patient housing near the TMC, the overwhelming number of applications already received by Halo House (>2,200) and our desire to put in place a system that efficiently and cost-effectively provides housing for decades to come, Halo House is building a dedicated facility.
