This home is operated by the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite, to provide a place for patients and their families who are using the Mayo Medical Center. It is staffed by volunteers and funded by donations. The inspiration for a "Home Away From Home" came from Christian people who sought medical help and desired a place of quietness, spiritual warmth, comfort, and support. It is our prayer that we will be able to supply these needs for you while you are in our home and that God's blessing may rest on you while here.
