Pompeian, CCIM, GRI, founded Gift of Life Transplant House in 1984 to give organ transplant patients an affordable place to live while awaiting a organ donation or receiving post-operative treatment at the Mayo Clinic. Pompeian became aware of the need for affordable temporary housing after his own kidney transplant in 1973. He started by letting patients stay in his own home and then began purchasing homes and apartment buildings. The facility now has 87 rooms and logs more than 50,000 guest nights per year.
