Hunter Eldon Willard
In 1991, Jeff and Tracy Willard experienced the devastating loss of their son, Hunter Eldon Willard, who was just 16 days old. Born seven weeks early, Hunter spent his short life in and out of Port Huron Hospital (now McLaren Port Huron), including a stay in the special care nursery.
Since that time, the Willards dreamed of providing a home near the hospital for families with hospitalized loved ones-a place where they could shower, take a nap, and eat a small meal, while being just steps away from the hospital.
In 2011, twenty years later, thanks to the help of many wonderful volunteers and contributors, their vision for Hunter Hospitality House became a reality. Just two years later, they were able to open a second home at 2509 10th Street, next to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital (now Lake Huron Medical Center). Now a third location is available, offering a cozy 2-bedroom house where kids are welcome to stay in this single-family home!
Convenient, free lodging for all ages is now available in three beautiful, bed-and-breakfast style homes across from each hospital in Port Huron.
