Jayme's Journey
“When I first started treatment, it was too expensive for us to stay in a hotel, so my dad would sleep in the back of his truck. Once we found out about Family House – they provided us a free, clean, safe environment. I couldn’t imagine going through this treatment without Family House.” -Jayme King, patient
Marisa's Story
“At Family House, you’re living with people who know what you’re going through. I got support from Family House that let me support my family. It’s a very sad and stressful time, but if you can be made to feel good, this is the place.” Kirk Shelton, dad
“Everyone at Family House goes way beyond providing the necessities. They’ve become Ronin’s extended family – her aunts and uncles and fairy godmothers. That’s been the biggest gift.” -Brooks Bigart, mom

“We were there for 11 months and experienced all of my son’s ‘firsts’ at Family House, including his first Christmas. Family House was my family-away-from-family. They helped me with transportation, gave me gift cards. They didn’t need to do that, but they did.” -Ashlee Hannah, mom
