Overnight Stays

Our House accommodates 12 families each night in private bedrooms with baths. The House also includes a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, a playroom for children, an exercise room and lounge area. Though we serve multiple counties, to qualify for a room the family must have a child who is 21 years or younger and receiving care in Westchester County. There is often a waitlist for rooms and priority is given based on the critical nature of the patient and distance from the familys home to the hospital.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
