Since 1981, Family House has been serving 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. The organization temporarily houses families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital who live more than 50 miles from UCSF. Over the course of a year, they serve more than 4,000 families. With their in-person volunteer program temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 protocols, support Family House through their virtual volunteer opportunities or donate directly.
