Our Mission is to provide temporary housing in our community with a warm, safe environment for individuals and their families who are hospitalized or receiving treatment for a serious medical condition.
We extend our reach and impact by leveraging our cumulative years of experience and strong relationships within the community as well as the medical and support personnel of current and future medical service providers. We continually work to improve and expand our core programs, while also developing plans to meet the future needs of the constantly changing medical community.
We don’t do it alone. We rely on our Friends of Cinco Charities as well as our friends within the National Association of Hospital Hospitality Housing to identify needs and best practices and carry out our mission on the ground. We rely on our strong relationships with the medical community to provide access to health care. We rely on strategic alliances with organizations that have the knowledge and infrastructure to extend our reach. We rely on you – our donors, volunteers, staff and friends.
Become a naming right sponsor…
Naming Rights allow a person, family or organization to sponsor a room for five years. A plaque will hang next to the door of the room acknowledging the memory of, in honor of or recognizing an individual or group. This also allows the guests to see to the support of the Katy community for The Ballard House for their healing.
We currently have 7 rooms that are not yet named and are available to be named. Our goal is to have ALL the rooms named in our current facility before we open our addition in 2019. What a wonderful way to help support our mission of offering no cost housing for patients and their families who have traveled to the Houston area to receive treatment for a life-threatening illness.

Please consider volunteering at the Ballard House. There is a need you can fill and the results are rewarding!
