Who We Are

Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House is saving families from around northeast Indiana and beyond considerable time, energy and dollars in travel and overnight lodging while their children undergo lifesaving treatments at area hospitals. Mad Anthonys Children’s Hope House offers families who would sleep in cars and hospital lobbies a safe haven at a donation of $10 per day, although no family will be turned away for the inability to pay.

Jack Arnold, founding president of Children’s Hope, says, “Children’s Hope is a reality, where very worried parents receive comfort and support, in addition to lodging. It’s not just a hotel; there is a lot of healing going on and a lot of communicating between guests. We also have a library, which provides much-needed information for parents, and a meditation room which serves as a great spiritual comfort zone.”
