Imagine receiving a life-threatening diagnosis requiring weeks of treatment far from your home, family and job.
Imagine the relief of finding housing near the hospital, provided at no cost to you, and the comfort of knowing you are not alone.
This is the mission of Fair Haven Foundation.
Fair Haven exists to share the love of Jesus Christ with out-of-town patients and families of patients being treated at IU Health University Hospital and IU Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis. Fair Haven provides free, temporary housing and compassionate support to these families, creating a "haven" amidst the storm of serious health issues.
Since 2008, Fair Haven has provided more than 5,000 nights of lodging to patients and their families, lifting part of the immense financial, emotional and physical burden of treatment, and sharing Christ's love in a tangible way.

“In this world that we're living in, you don't see many people who care and take the time to help somebody. And that's what Fair Haven is all about.” — Ron, family member of cancer patient
