Family House

The Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House at Mission Bay

Since 1981, Family House has served as a home away from home for families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses receiving treatment at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. Operating at a near-100% capacity, over 100 people stay at Family House each night, completely free of charge, for as long as their child is receiving treatment.


Family House is moving to Mission Bay! The grand opening of the Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House will be on Wednesday, March 2, 2016. The new, 80-bedroom home is being built from the ground-up so that all families who need a place to stay will be able to bring their child to San Francisco for life-saving treatment.

The new Family House will accommodate 250 guests per night, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!
