About us 2017-11-06T14:37:08+10:00

Heartfelt Homes is a charity based in Lennox Head in the beautiful Northern Rivers of NSW.  We find and subsidise accommodation near city hospitals for regional, rural and remote families with a loved one admitted to hospital far from home.

Heartfelt Homes was established in 2013 as a result of the personal experience of Founder and CEO, Caroline Meehan, and her family.

From everything we’ve encountered on our own journey, we know that the most helpful thing you can do for someone in a crisis, far from home, is to give them a safe place to stay. 

We’re here because living in a regional community we know that in a medical emergency the best care is often a long way from home. Sadly, getting to this treatment can push families who are already under financial and emotional pressure to breaking point.

With the support of our valuable donors, we do whatever it takes to keep Australian families together to help the patient heal faster and to take away a little bit of the stress from the family member who’s organising the logistics.

We are a small team who are solely reliant on donations and volunteer support to continue our operations across New South Wales, Queensland, and throughout the rest of Australia.
