Each year, dozens of families stay with us throughout the holiday season. These families know all too well that the sickness of a child is never put on hold. Please help us make our House a home this holiday season for the children and families we serve. From shopping for our families with our Holiday Wish List, volunteering your time as a family, or sponsoring a family’s cost for the month so they can focus on what’s really important – their child, there are many ways help this Season of Giving.

Holiday Wish List

We understand that holiday shopping is usually the last thing on a parent’s mind when facing the illness of a child. Thanks to the generous support of our friends and community, we are able to check holiday shopping off our families’ lists. Each year we open our Snowflake Room to both parents and children – allowing them to select and wrap complimentary gifts for their whole family. Holiday Wish Lists are carefully chosen based on the age and interests of our guests.

Sponsor a Family’s Cost This Holiday Season

Each family that stays with us is asked to make a $15 per night donation at the end of their stay – if they are able. With mounting medical bills and loss of incomes, many simply can’t pay for some or all of their stay. Even though the cost for us to host a family is $75 per night, no family is ever turned away for their inability to pay.

Please consider sponsoring a family’s cost by donating this Season of Giving.
