donate time at your vacation home

Open your doors to a family facing cancer!


Our first respite vacation in 2000 took place at a private vacation home at the Jersey Shore. Since then, we’ve been welcoming our home donors with a unique opportunity to witness the impact of a break from cancer.

Home owners are able to donate their home(s) for a week or more for patients to enjoy. Donors may offer their homes during a time that is most convenient for them. We consider all vacation destinations, and are currently looking for more locations in the Pennsylvania Poconos, The Jersey Shore and areas easily accessible by New York City residents.

Donating a home brings so much more than just a vacation to the patients of For Pete’s Sake; it is truly a long-awaited escape that brings joy, love and relaxation to those who need it most. It is through these vacations that patients are able to leave the stresses of cancer at the door and find time to strengthen their most important relationships in a carefree environment.

*During this pandemic, we are currently not using donated homes for respite; we still encourage you to reach out so that when we resume our donated home program, we can welcome your participation!
