The Yellow Door Foundation has come together with UVA Children’s Hospital and 3 area non-profit housing groups to create the UVA Children’s Hospital Housing Collaborative. The shared vision of the collaborative is to serve pediatric patients and their families during a medical crisis by coordinating resources to provide safe, nurturing and affordable lodging while the families are away from their home communities. This joint effort makes it easier for families by reducing their stress over the need to find short term area lodging and allowing them to concentrate on their sick child and the entire family.
