About Family House
Family House serves as a home away from home for families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses by providing physical comfort and emotional support, free from financial concerns.
Founded in 1981, Family House is an independent 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization providing temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. We accommodate over 240 people per night, always 100% free of charge. Working in conjunction with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital social workers, we strive to provide family-centered care for patient families. Family House is more than just free, temporary housing – it’s a home away from home, and a supportive community of people who are dedicated to providing a caring environment for the entire family while their child is undergoing treatment.
The Mabon at Hourglass
You are invited to howl at the moon and usher in the harvest at The Mabon – a pagan celebration of balance, for the unbalanced, at Hourglass Winery in Napa Valley. (Wines by Hourglass, music featuring Wristrocket, food trucks, The Oyster Girls, and much more….) This exclusive party will be on September 9, 2017. Tickets are $150 each, with all proceeds benefiting Family House. Watch the video from the 2016 party.
