The Comfort Fund
The Comfort Fund provides financial assistance to patients for the nightly rate, ensuring no one is turned away for inability to pay. Big or small; every night you help provide comfort makes a difference. Your contribution makes an immediate impact. The extra costs associated with treatment can pose challenges to patients, and their families. Relieving this financial worry helps families focus on the treatment plan.
IMD Guest House is the only facility in Chicago to support patients and their family members of any age, receiving any type of medical treatment.
$65 supports a guest for one night. IMD Guest House provides an average of 645 nights of service each month. Over 90% of medical nights qualify for financial assistance.
IMD Guest House hosts veterans who are receiving treatment for PTSD and MST through The National Center of Excellence And Their Families At Rush.
Each month a cohort of 16 veterans checks-in to IMD Guest House to begin a journey to recovery. These men and women who have fought for our country, are now fighting personal battles. Veterans come to Chicago from around the country for a specialized PTSD treatment program through the Rush Road Home Program.
When a veteran enters the three-week intensive program, she or he has decided to obtain effective, professional treatment. Veterans attend this program away from loved ones, family members, and their emotional support systems. IMD Guest House is their home away from home during treatment. We provide every veteran and their support person comfortable accommodations at no cost to the veteran.
This year, the program expanded to 18 veterans in each cohort. As this program grows, we need your help to support our veterans who have given so much to all of us. At the end of each day, our veterans know they can come to IMD Guest House to relax, be safe, and build community with one another.
“I stayed at IMD Guest House for three weeks while I received treatment. I was able to concentrate on my therapy. Thank you.” – Veteran, Guest
