Learn More About Open Arms

A medical crisis can take patients and families away from their own home in search of specialized treatment. To lessen the financial and emotional burden associated with medical treatment, Open Arms provides a home away from home at no cost to qualifying patients and families facing this situation.

Open Arms Homes

Open Arms homes are fully-furnished, two-bedroom, first-floor apartments stocked with linens, kitchen items, and other miscellaneous necessities. The entire rent, along with basic utilities, are paid for by MAA and the Open Arms Foundation. The minimum stay in an Open Arms home is one month, and the maximum stay is up to two years, as long as the patient is continuing to undergo active medical treatment. Guests must be referred to Open Arms homes through their treatment facility. If you are interested in staying in an Open Arms home, please contact your case manager at the treatment center where you will be receiving treatment, or Contact Us. The Open Arms Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charity chartered by the state of Tennessee which is materially funded by MAA and its associates.
