Become a Host

Offer some Midwestern hospitality to women seeking abortion care. Patient Stays Wisconsin is looking for individuals and families who would be willing to open up their home and offer support to women in need of a place to stay during what can be a stressful time in their lives. Please consider welcoming one of these women into your home and providing her with a safe place to sleep for two nights, meals during her stay, and emotional support if she needs it.

The standard stay is two nights to accommodate the patient’s two appointments and recovery time. Some patients may wish to bring a friend or partner, or need to bring children with her. We ask that hosts be as accommodating and flexible as possible.


Patient Stays Wisconsin would love your assistance in providing free accommodation to women receiving abortion services. We do ask the following of you:

  • Have private (spare) room available
  • Be located on Madison’s north/east side
  • Have a short interview with the Patient Stays Wisconsin team in your home
