Bringing Hope Home directly pays household bills for families who are struggling financially because of their cancer diagnosis. We pay things like rent and mortgage, electric, gas, oil, water, phone, and car payments. We do everything we can to ensure that families can stay in their home, with the lights on, heat and air conditioning turned up, phones working, and food on the table. No money is paid to the family directly. Rather, money is sent to utility vendors on the family’s behalf.
We assist families in the Greater Philadelphia Area. Specifically, families must live within one of the following counties to qualify for assistance: (PA) Berks county, Bucks county, Chester county, Delaware county, Montgomery county, Philadelphia county, (NJ) Atlantic county, Burlington county, Camden county, Cape May county, Cumberland County, Gloucester county, Salem county, (DE) New Castle county, Kent county, Sussex county. We also assist families being treated at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, MD.
