The Believe In Tomorrow National Childrenís Foundationís second hospital housing facility provides extended stay accommodations to pediatric patients and their families undergoing lengthy hospital treatments. The Believe In Tomorrow House at St. Casimir is situated along Baltimoreís historic waterfront, in the beautiful community of Canton. This nationally significant project is the first stand-alone hospital housing facility within the United States to focus exclusively on the long-term housing needs of pediatric bone marrow transplant patients, their parents and siblings.
Formerly a convent, the building has seven apartments, several large common areas, an enclosed garden courtyard, and a roof-top deck. Believe In Tomorrow’s House at St. Casimir provides housing to pediatric patients who travel from cities across the United States to receive treatment at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
“Thank you for allowing us to stay at St. Casimir. We enjoyed our stay very much. Having the apartment allowed me to have treatments at JH. Thank you for taking care of us!” –Luke, age 13, battling cancer
Pediatric bone marrow transplant patients typically receive hospital treatment for 60 to 120 days. The concept for this facility was driven by the need for long-term patients and their families to live in an environment that offers communal support inside and outside of the home. The Believe In Tomorrow House at St. Casimir enables families to walk along the waterfront and enjoy the amenities of an upscale community, while living in a building that promotes group support.Believe In Tomorrow’s House at St. Casimir was renovated with help from Erickson Retirement Communities, which donated general contracting services. Each suite was individually decorated by interior designers who generously lent their services to help make families feel at home. Other support included donations of substantial construction materials, contracted service and labor.
