The House includes 15 guest rooms, two living rooms, a fitness area, laundry facilities, and a family-style kitchen and dining area. It will provide a home for families of children being treated at area hospitals including St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, Temple University Children's Medical Center and Shriners Hospital.
