Wish List


Ulman House is free for patients and families, because of the generosity of our donors. 

Your hospital social worker will need to fill out a referral form. Once we’ve determined you are eligible to stay at Ulman House, we will confirm your reservation and contact you. 

Regular check-in hours are 3 p.m to 8 p.m. If there is space available, you may check-in the day before an early morning appointment. Otherwise, you can drop your stuff with us and check in after your appointment. Check-in details can be determined when your stay is confirmed.

Referrals from your social worker must provide an estimated treatment start date and end date. Families must check-out within 24 hours after treatment is completed.

If a hospital extends the patient’s treatment schedule beyond the date of the initial referral, a new referral needs to be submitted at least 5 days before the initial end date. Ulman staff will try to accommodate the extended request; however, new guests with confirmed stays or guests on the waitlist may receive priority.

If a patient is admitted to the hospital during their stay at Ulman House their caregiver may stay at Ulman House for a limited time. Our priority at Ulman House is to serve patients and their caregivers, so the caregiver may be asked to leave if it is determined there are other eligible patients and families who need the room.

Ulman House does not provide transportation to treatment, but staff may help you arrange a ride if needed.

Each room can accommodate up to four people.

Visitors are welcome at Ulman House between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. All visitors must sign in at the front office, wear a visitor’s badge, and stay in designated public and visiting areas.

Each room will be assigned a mini fridge and storage space for food in our pantry. Food must be stored, cooked, and consumed in the kitchen and dining room areas only. Food and beverages, other than water, are not allowed in the guest rooms.

Yes! We love getting mail and we’re sure you will too. Packages will be held at the front office and mail can be collected from the mail cart.

There is a phone and two computers in the house library for general use. Televisions are accessible in the living room, conference room, fitness center, and music room.

Guests should plan to bring some of their own food for snacks and lunch. Ulman House will provide grab and go breakfast and have volunteers come in to make dinner during the week. 

Guests are responsible for the upkeep of their room and common area cleanup during their stay at Ulman House. Cleaning supplies are provided.

Ulman House has a laundry room with detergent guests may use for their personal laundry. Guests are responsible for cleaning their own sheets and towels during their stay.

Yes! We’re here to provide a community of support and that includes everything from art therapy and music lessons, to game nights and workout classes. When you get to the house you will find a schedule of events on the television outside the front office.
