Kevin Guest House

Learn more about Kevin’s story and our history.  Our mission is to provide a comfortable and supportive home away from home for patients and their families traveling for medical care.  Our vision is that we were America’s first independent healthcare hospitality house, setting the standard for compassionate guest care. Our values - The door is always open at Kevin Guest House.  We are planning a future trip to Kevin Guest House in Buffalo September 5th.  If you would like to offer yourself for future dates, please speak to Karin Johnson.

Blanket Project

Blankets are being made for children in foster care.  The local foster care system distributes 100 blankets a month. Our group will create no-sew blankets that can be made in one night and delivered to the Child Advocate Center on Franklin St. with tags that say "This blanket belongs to: _________" and the child will be able to write there name on it.  This way they will always be able to have at least one thing that is their own. We meet the third Thursday of each month from 6-8 at the church.  Contact Lisa ( for more details. To date we’ve donated (and have still at church) roughly 250 blankets. We will meet again in September.  .
