WHY: After a three-year hiatus, the Miracle Home project is back. Co-created in 2003 by Friends of Children’s Hospital and the Home Builders Association of Jackson (HBAJ), the Batson Hospital MiracleHome quickly became one of Friends’ largest fundraisers. Friends and the HBAJ work with a volunteer builder to construct a home to be given away December 6.

Directions to the MiracleHome:
From Interstate 55, take County Line Road exit, head east towards Old Canton Road.  Turn left on South Pear Orchard Road just after Northpark Mall.  Continue straight on South Pear Orchard Road through the first red light and turn right at the next red light onto Towne Center Boulevard.  The Enclave will be on your left just before Hospice Ministries.
