Pay-It-Forward House Welcomes You

Pay-It-Forward House, NFP is a healthcare hospitality house organized to provide a supportive and caring home-away-from-home for family and friends of patients receiving medical treatment in DeKalb County, Illinois, especially at Kindred Hospital in Sycamore.

Most of our guests are far from home, visiting a loved one at Kindred Hospital-Sycamore, at Kishwaukee Community Hospital or under the care of DeKalb County Hospice.                            Pay-It-Forward House welcomes them to catch their breath and get some rest, whether for a few hours (free of charge) or a few weeks (at minimal expense). Our warm, friendly home-away-from-home was created to help alleviate the stress and worry of persons living through a loved one's illness. We invite you to take a virtual tour to see the House and its Serenity Garden.

Admission to the House for overnight accommodations requires a referral from staff at the treating facility. The receptionists know how to initiate the referral process as do many of the nurses and social workers.

If a loved one’s illness brings you to DeKalb County, Pay-It-Forward House, located at 719 Somonauk Street, across the street from Kindred Hospital-Sycamore, is a place you should know. In spite of the proximity, Pay-It-Forward House and Kindred Hospital-Sycamore are separate legal entities. Pay-It-Forward House, NFP is a recognized 501(c)3 charitable organization, funded by the generosity of people from all over the United States.
