In December 2001, the Support Group for Children with Cancer inaugurated the Home Hope, an elaborate design and dreamed by all the volunteers whose aim was to host children in oncology and hematology treatment registered with their companions (parents or guardians). It was a simple house whose rooms offered a minimum of comfort, where the families, despite sharing the same space, felt at ease.
With its own headquarters, users' families gained more privacy, being able to enjoy their moments alone, in separate rooms, or share moments of integration with other families in the common areas of the headquarters and living spaces. The transplanted children, who were previously unable to stay in the house, being taken in by volunteers, also gained their own space with an adequate structure.
