to Being Home
InSpirit Patient Housing provides comfortable, affordable apartments to people traveling to the Texas Medical Center for medical treatment. The apartments are leased and furnished by Houston-area churches and made available to patients, and their family or friends traveling with them, at a very low cost. InSpirit is a nondenominational coalition of local churches, all moved by the common goal of serving God by helping people through a difficult and stressful time in their lives.
InSpirit Patient Housing is a coalition of churches sharing a single application process, with the goal of meeting the needs of as many people as possible. All you need to do is fill out our simple online application with your contact information, the hospital or facility you need to be near, your expected dates of need, and the number of people staying with you. A volunteer from InSpirit will call you—or your designated point of contact—to confirm the details about your stay, and then will pass the application along to the pool of churches. You'll receive a phone call from a church volunteer if they have an apartment that matches your needs.
Our Guests Say
The word inspirit means to encourage, hearten, and fill with comfort and courage. That is the essence of what InSpirit Patient Housing aims to provide. For nearly 40 years, volunteers from InSpirit's member churches have provided apartments to people traveling to the Texas Medical Center for treatment, collaborating to make sure no need goes unmet. Each church leases apartments, which are comfortably furnished and maintained by volunteers. In doing this, InSpirit's volunteers look to serve God and Christ by showing love to all in need. Our ministry is inclusive: we welcome people of all faiths or no faith, and we will never pressure you to discuss spiritual concerns. We understand that traveling for medical treatment is stressful, and our volunteers are caring, experienced, and sensitive.
