Greetings VOGA members! We hope this finds you and your family well during these crazy times!
For those of you who don’t know, the Yellow Door Foundation, based in Charlottesville Virginia, was established in May 2017 for the purpose of providing Free lodging for the families of immune-compromised children being treated at UVA Children’s hospital. Working as part of the UVA Children’s Hospital Housing Collaborative, we serve cancer and transplant pediatric patients almost exclusively, those for whom communal living is not the best option.
we have hosted 34 families since welcoming our first in February 2018.
since February 2018, we have welcomed 34 families to the Yellow Door apartments at Stone Creek Village.
the family of UVA‘s youngest ever heart transplant patient age stayed with us for two months while he recovered.
