Thousands of patients come to Indianapolis each year from across the Midwest for expertise and specialized care for many types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, organ transplant, high-risk pregnancy, and other conditions.

A window of hope.

Fair Haven serves these seriously ill patients and their families. We share the love of Christ during a time of great difficulty by providing a convenient and comfortable place to stay near the hospital.

Our “home away from home” makes urgently needed care accessible for patients and enables families to stay together at a time when they need each other most.

Since 2008, Fair Haven has provided 25,000 nights of lodging to nearly 1,000 families.

Storm-Tossed Ship

Our name comes from the Mediterranean island of “Fair Havens,” where a storm-tossed ship once found refuge (Acts 27:8).

That is truly the heart of our mission: to serve seriously-ill patients and their families by providing a refuge in the midst of a storm.

Who We Are

Fair Haven Foundation was founded by Amanda Milner, a cancer survivor herself.

As an employee of Indiana University Health, Amanda saw first-hand the struggle of patients who have been given a life-threatening diagnosis and must leave their homes, families, and jobs to travel to Indianapolis for treatment.

Our board of directors, staff, and dedicated volunteers all have a passion to serve patients and their families and shine the light of Christ’s love during this time of great need.
