Little Pink Houses of Hope is a non-profit organization that serves breast cancer patients and their families propelling families to live stronger, laugh harder and love deeper. The organization provides free week-long vacation retreat experiences for breast cancer patients going through treatment and their families.
The Little Pink’s programming effectively meets families where they are on their journey and provides support for each family member as well as for the unit as a whole. Little Pink responds to the needs of breast cancer survivors so that they can focus on strengthening their family; by spending quality time as a family unit, by meeting other families in the same health condition, and by creating an ongoing support network. Little Pink provides opportunities for families to de-stress from the rigor of appointments and cancer treatments.
Little Pink is headquartered in Burlington, North Carolina and is governed by an 11-member Board of Directors, comprised of members of the local community.
