NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Family members from out of town who have children in the hospital now have a place to stay on the Children's Hospital campus.
  
Hogs House officially opened Thursday.
  
It has 13 family suites that each have their own private bathroom. There's a common area with two family lounges and kitchen space so people can make meals.
  
 Hogs for the Cause is a top funding source for pediatric outreach services.
  
The organization hosts a two-day festival held every spring featuring a BBQ competition as well as a musical lineup.
  
The organization has been giving out grants for more than 10 years, including to Ochsner Hospital for Children and Children's Hospital in New Orleans.
  
A 1920's townhouse on the campus was renovated to turn it into a housing facility.
