Ohio Chapter Sponsored Charity - Unverferth House, Columbus

At it's meeting in December, the Ohio Chapter Board of Directors' chose the Unverferth House in Columbus as the Chapter's 2016 Charity of the Year.

The Unverferth House serves as a temporary residence for The Ohio State University Medical Center patients and families who live outside Franklin County. The House provides a safe and comfortable environment to families and offers them a chance to share thoughts and emotions with others who may be experiencing a similar situation. The House also serves as convenient housing for patients just after discharge, when frequent visits back to University Medical Center are required.

Priority is given to families of patients receiving a heart transplant at University Medical Center, but the House welcomes families of other patients as space allows. All guests must be referred to the Unverferth House by a University Medical Center social worker.
