Within the home… the founders provide respite for cancer patients, host community gatherings, retreats, meetings, as well as carry out operational duties to ensure that cancer patients and their loved ones, who are financially in need, have access to lodging, nutritional meals, transportation assistance and emotional support, at no cost, while receiving cancer treatment in Columbus, Ohio.
The residence was designed for the Meek Family in 1939 by a prominent Columbus architect, Thomas Tully. Over the years this beautiful country property, which originally sat on the banks of the Olentangy River, was a sheep farm that included an apple orchard. The home has the unpretentious and rambling character of a New England country home, including stone walls and mature trees. A towering sycamore stands watch over all, including those who to this day return to visit their childhood home.
Every effort was made in the design of the landscape and the restoration of the home to create a warm, inviting, and relaxed space. After spending a day navigating the hospital environment… the hope is that upon arriving at Hope Hollow, visitors will feel they have come home.
