About Home Away From Home
Home Away From Home is a hospitality ministry that provides short-term housing to cancer patients and their caregivers while they undergo treatment in Little Rock.
Most guests are receiving bone-marrow transplants or other cancer treatments at the UAMS Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy or the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, but the apartments are open to anyone coming to Little Rock for medical treatment.

Several one and two bedroom apartments are available in midtowne Little Rock at the Park Avenue Lofts, 320 S University Avenue (Click here for a map), or in west Little Rock at Palisades at Chenal, 1501 Rahling Road (Click here for a map). Special pricing is offered for month-to-month, weekly, and even per-day rates (based on availability). Guests are accepted regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background.
How to Volunteer
Volunteers are needed to help us go the extra mile to make sure our patients know they are well cared for and not alone while they are far from home during a challenging time. The service our volunteers provide is a big part of what makes HAFH different from the other options in Little Rock, showing love to those that come to stay.
Volunteer opportunities can be set up with Crysty Kimberlin or through the sign up genius. On the Signup Genius you will see a tab to switch between our regular needs and our special Spring events. Each tab has a document link that explains the event. These activities are prepared for groups of 10-20 people. However, adjustments can always be made for more or less.
Please feel free to contact Crysty if you have questions or would like more details. We are excited for your interest in serving with Home Away from Home!
