Comfort House has been around since the year 1989 we are an organization that provides a home-like environment for the terminally ill who have a prognosis of 4 months or less to live.
Our Founder
Sister M. Stromeyer
Sister Stromeyer is the heart of The Comfort House. She was the spearhead of this organization and her drive to help others in dire need when they needed it most, still continues to live on with our current Staff and Volunteers.
We are forever grateful for her and to this day she is considered a role model for many of us here at The Comfort House.
About Us
In 1989, Comfort House Services, Inc., began its ministry to the dying under the auspices of the Diocese of Brownsville. Volunteers signed on to provide care in a three-bed home close to downtown McAllen. In 1992, the Diocese transferred oversight to a new community organization, Comfort House Services, Inc. (CHSI). Building programs in 1994 and 1997 increased our capacity to ten beds. However, we retained our homelike atmosphere and volunteers are still the heart of CHSI. We are licensed as a 501C3 non-profit Special Care Facility for the terminally ill who have a prognosis of four months or less to live.

Comfort House is a community-wide ministry of compassion to our residents whose mission is to provide a peaceful, homelike environment where a person may die in peace and with dignity while surrounded by loved ones. Our staff of committed, loving caregivers and volunteers assist residents and give hospitality to families.

CHSI does not bill for services. The families of the residents are asked to make donations as they are able. Additional support comes from the community, memorial gifts, fundraising activities and foundation grants.
