The Devon Nicole House Foundation was established in May of 2000 in memory of a special girl named Devon. Over a four year period we worked to raise funds and eventually helped establish a home-away-from-home. The Foundation now works to provide financial support to The Devon Nicole House at Children's Hospital and has set up a Grant program to help provide financial assistance directly to families that have stayed at the House and are being treated at Children's Hospital Boston.
