    All guests must be referred by someone related to their medical care. This could be a nurse, doctor, social worker, case manager or other patient related staff member.

    What Our Guests Have To Say

    • Debbie Effland
      I am excited to hear that SGH is expanding! As a past guest, I know first-hand the value of their services, but also the importance of this growth. The new elevator, fist floor rooms, accessible space, and more will be a great addition to serve those who otherwise could not stay at this wonderful home. It was a blessing to me when I needed it, and I hope others can enjoy it.

    • Larry
      "I didn't realize having such a nice place to stay near the hospital would relieve my anxiety so much."

    • Ann
      "To all the supporters of Sarah's Guest House - thank you. With all our medical bills, I would not have been able to stay near my husband without this place. This has been the greatest blessing ever."

    • Carla
      "After getting a cancer diagnosis in December, I was in shock and so scared. I needed to start daily treatments right away. I was in severe pain, feeling terrible and taking a lot of medications. Plus, I live 70 miles away. I needed the support of one of my sons at all times. When I found out about Sarah's Guest House, and that my son could stay with me, at least part of the weight was lifted from me. I just can't thank everyone involved enough. From the amazing job the cleaning staff does to the wonderful people and organizations who donate money, food, time and other necessities. Also the staff: David, Renee, Kim, Meg and others who keep it running smoothly. And of course, a special thank you to Mary, the founder, who created something so needed and appreciated."
