About Our Facility

Welcome to the American Cancer Society's Puerto Rico Hope Lodge.
 
The Puerto Rico Hope Lodge–Hogar Niños Que Quieren Sonreír (HNQQS), which opened in July 2013–is the newest initiative in the ACS Puerto Rico Inc., fight against cancer. The facility, located in San Juan, provides free lodging for adults and children undergoing treatment in Puerto Rico and surrounding islands.
 
HNQQS is the only Hope Lodge that serves children, and the only one in the Caribbean. The new facility integrated the already established Hogar Niños Que Quieren Sonreír, which has offered temporary lodging for more than 20 years and countless other services free of charge for pediatric cancer patients receiving cancer treatment and their family members. Since it opened, the HNQQS has welcomed more than 700 families from Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
