Founded in 1981, Family House provides temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. Qualifying families live more than 50 miles from San Francisco, and many live at or below the low-income status as determined by UCSF. At our new location in Mission Bay, The Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House, we provide housing for 80 families, sustaining a nearly a 100% occupancy rate and can accommodate 240 people per night. At Family House, we work tirelessly to provide families with children undergoing treatment at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital a place they can feel at home - a place of comfort, community, and courage.
