Target House - Long-term Patient Stay

There’s no place in the world quite like Target House—a multimillion dollar gift from Target Stores. While nothing can completely replace the comfort of home, Target House comes close by providing a magnificent community of fully equipped, two-bedroom apartments in a beautiful setting just minutes from St. Jude. Here, families who need to be at St. Jude from 90 days to up to three years or more have privacy, independence, and support. After seeing the need for more housing, Target furthered its commitment to St. Jude by expanding and building Target House II, bringing the total capacity of Target House to 96 families. With the addition of Target House II, 100% of St. Jude’s long-term housing needs were met.

Thanks to over $27 million dollars in donations from Target Stores and its partners, families whose children are undergoing lifesaving treatment at St. Jude live at Target House free of charge. In partnership with Target vendors, the apartments are patient-friendly and fully furnished with everything from linens to appliances to furniture, making the move to Target House as smooth a transition as possible. To make their stay more pleasant, all residents can enjoy spectacular communal amenities such as the Tiger Woods Library, Scott Hamilton Family Fitness Center and Parents’ Spa, Amy Grant Music Room, and Scott Hamilton Arts and Crafts Room.

Target House is more than a place to stay. It’s a haven where children and their families derive compassion, comfort, and strength from other family’s struggles and victories. In a difficult time, Target House is a place to live, heal, and rejoice as a family.
