About Us…

"Support for your cancer journey."

 

Located at 700 West First, Hope House is a dream come true for West Texas Gifts of Hope whose vision was to create a safe lodging environment for patients who seek help during cancer treatment. The goal is to provide comfort for cancer patients who are referred by the West Texas Cancer Center.
