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.
In 2015, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital will open its new facility in San Francisco’s Mission Bay and The Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House will be constructed right next door. Groundbreaking is scheduled for September 17, 2014. A capital campaign is underway for this new facility that will provide free, temporary housing for EVERY family traveling to San Francisco for their child's life-saving treatment. To find out more and how you can get involved, please visit www.familyhouseinc.org.
Family House is holding its first-ever crowdfunding campaign to raise $100,000 for the new Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House in Mission Bay. In partnership with the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Train, “Calling All Angels,” will generate funds needed to support ALL families who need free, temporary housing while their children are being treated for cancer and other critical illnesses at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. The campaign runs through Wednesday, June 4th at indiegogo.com/projects/calling-all-angels. This campaign ends on June 15, 2014.
Founded in 1981, Family House is a 501(c) (3) (94-2722663) not-for-profit organization providing temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the University of California San Francisco Benioff Children's Hospital. Qualifying families live more than 50 miles from UCSF, and many live at or below the low-income status as determined by UCSF. Our two locations sustain nearly a 100% occupancy rate and can accommodate 107 people per night. Over the course of a year we serve more than 2,000 families.
