About us

Who we are...

The Lazarus House is dedicated to helping the community of Houston successfully combat and manage cachexia, or disease related muscle loss. We teach life skills to the chronically ill, adolescents and adults alike, so they may learn how to enjoy a more productive and improved quality of life. Cachexia is the devastating cycle of malnutrition and muscle wasting that accompanies numerous chronic illnesses like cancer, HIV/AIDS, lupus, muscular dystrophy, and even situations like spinal cord trauma. It robs clients of their energy, sense of well being, ability to live independently, and ultimately quality of life.

Revitalizing the community through wellness...

The Wellness Program offered by The Lazarus House provides hope and opportunity to many who face chronic illness. Set in the one of a kind, safe haven setting of a refurbished Victorian house in Midtown Houston, the Wellness Program is a multidisciplinary program that focuses on the body, mind and spirit through an integrated program of exercise, nutrition, and peer support. The Wellness Program teaches adults and adolescents alike life improving skills that empower each individually to attain a higher quality of life.
