Who We Are…

Pay-It-Forward House is a healthcare hospitality house established to provide a home-away-from-home for family and friends of patients receiving medical treatment. Most of our guests are here visiting a loved one at Kindred Hospital-Sycamore, or at Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Hospital or under the care of DeKalb County Hospice.

We welcome our guests to the House 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 relieve some of the stress and worry our guests  might be experiencing because of their loved one’s illness.
