You Can Help Every Family Keep Hope Alive

Family House celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, and because of friends like you, we have served more than 75,000 families since 1981! Each night, Family House provides up to 80 families with temporary housing and a supportive community, always 100% free of charge. 

Whether you donate through a check or credit card, donor-advised funds, a will or trust, or a donation of toys and essentials, your contribution makes a difference!

Welcome High School Volunteers

Our Summer high school volunteer program is off to a hot start!
