Celebrating the Family House Community
Last month we celebrated our 5,000-strong volunteer force as part of Volunteer Appreciation Week! Family House volunteers play a pivotal role in the success of our mission by assisting our staff to provide a safe and comfortable home for families in crisis. Check out the video and learn more about the individual and corporate volunteers we count on including high schooler Mimoh Lee, Susan Ruhne from Salesforce, Service Corps, and Dropbox Social Impact.

We look forward to welcoming back onsite volunteers as soon as possible! If you're interested in volunteering, let us know here.
Support YPAC at Bay to Breakers
Family House's Young Professionals Advisory Council (YPAC) comes together every year to run San Francisco's annual Bay to Breakers race. While the event is virtual this year, YPAC members will be running the 7.5 mile distance together (from afar) the week of May 24 - May 30, 2021 with a goal of raising $10,000. Your donation supports the YPAC team with proceeds directed to the families staying at Family House.
With the help of volunteers and our friends at Benefit Cosmetics and Beautycounter, we helped the mothers staying at Family House feel special this past Mother's Day.
Who remembers when we unveiled Fozzy's Toy Room in May of 2017? Take a trip down memory lane or learn more about how to donate to support our kids.
