History

Our mission of service started in 1999 as The Arizona Transplant House, providing accommodations for patients recovering from transplant surgery and their caregivers. This home had previously been an Arabian horse ranch belonging to Ed and Ruth Tweed. In the 1990s, their daughter, Sally Tweed Groom, donated the property to Mayo Clinic, which was transformed into Arizona Transplant House.

Recently, responding to innovations in surgeries, clinical trials, and medical treatments not foreseen when we were established, the Board of Directors broadened our mission to provide services to a wider range of patients. Consistent with the new mission, the name of the corporation was changed to Help In Healing Home Foundation.

Today, Help In Healing Home is located at the newly constructed Village at Mayo Clinic, adjacent to the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona and can now accommodate 84 patients/caregivers.
