IMD Guest House is an independent 501c3 that provides temporary lodging to medical patients seeking treatment in Chicago, and their families. It is the only organization in the Chicago area that supports patients of all ages, seeking any type of treatment. Key populations include cancer patients, organ transplant recipients, parents with children receiving NICU treatment, accident victims, and military veterans receiving treatment for PTSD. Out maximum nightly rate is $65, and no family is turned away for financial reasons - many of our guests could not complete treatment without our services. A few key facts:

• 47 fully-furnished apartments

• Supported 706 families in 2018

• Delivered more than 12,300 nights of service in 2018

• 50% of service supports low-income families
