About Almost Home:
Almost Home is a charitable organization, operating in Kingston, that provides temporary accommodation to families whose children are receiving medical treatment in Kingston area hospitals.
Many families must travel a distance to receive treatment at Kingston-area hospitals for their ill or injured child. When a child is receiving treatment, the healing process can only be improved when a child is surrounded by the love and support of their family. Almost Home provides a comfortable and caring environment – a temporary home-away-from-home – for families to get a much needed break from hospital surroundings. Whether they are looking to rejuvenate or to relax, whether it is for weeks, days or an hour, Almost Home is a source of relief that families with sick children have come to rely on.
