A House To A Neighborhood 🏘 – Grow and diversify our base support

Strategic priority #2: We will grow and diversify our base of support, with more people and partners joining us in our mission. 

Strategic Priority 2 - We will grow and diversity our base of support, with more people and partners joining us in our mission.

Our geographic and service expansion across the Bay Area creates opportunities for more individual, foundation, and corporate donors to join our neighborhood of support. There are many volunteer and partner opportunities at all of our locations, including, our 123-room house at Stanford, 11-rooms at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in San Francisco, and the recent opening of our 7-room house in Oakland. 

With the current focus on corporate social responsibility and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing, we offer a compelling partnership, addressing the very issues that our thriving Bay Area economy exacerbates – housing, food, and resource insecurity. We can demonstrate immediate impact with donations – large or small, cash or in-kind – allowing donors to see their direct role in scaling services to more families in more communities. 

Together, your company can keep families together and near the care sick children need.

Comfort & Care Kit Assembly – A great way for groups of all sizes to get involved 

Groups can participate from anywhere as long as one participant is able to deliver the kits to a program location. 

The families we serve are often on the go between doctor appointments, hospital visits, and travel to and from the House. Care kits provide families with the essentials so they can stay by their child’s side. 

You can prepare kits off-site at your school, office, hotel, community center, etc. OR you can have the activity on-site at our House in Palo Alto. Please see information on sponsorship costs for the activity here.
