All children deserve space to heal.

Family House had the privilege of serving more than 670 families in need during 2022.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors, Family House was able to provide dignity, a caring community, and a home by the hospital for families facing their child’s life-threatening diagnosis. But we cannot do it alone.

Please make a generous gift today to ensure that Family House will continue to provide a safe, compassionate, and worry-free environment so that families can focus on their healing.

Together, we have helped so many children and their families get through the most difficult times of their lives. Although 2022 presented many challenges, Family House remained committed to keeping families together by providing a home away from home for children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Johnny’s Story

When you make a gift to Family House, you are making a direct impact on kids like Johnny.

With a free spirit and a heart full of love, 6-year-old Johnny rides his wheelchair around Family House with a giant smile on his face. Four years ago, Johnny was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) with Calcinosis Universalis. JDM results in weak muscles and impairs physical function in severe cases.

“Family House has been a huge help to us financially and emotionally,” said Johnny’s mom and dad, Martina and Aldrich. “We feel the homey vibe here.”

“It was a relief knowing we had a place to stay, while my son continues his treatment and follow-up appointments at UCSF,” said Martina. Their family came to Family House from Houston, Texas in 2022.
