Volunteer Appreciation Week

We have the greatest people surrounding us! Volunteers from all over the world find a small local charity in San Francisco called Family House where they make the choice to help. The entire existence of Family House could not have happened if it wasn't for volunteers.  

Family House started with an all-volunteer staff.  From the very beginning, it was volunteers that chose to come together to create a place where families would be taken care of. As the need to support more families started to grow, volunteers have been there every step of the way.

By providing meals, dogs to pet, yoga to relax, arts to create, a haircut to feel good, and maintaining the facilitates, volunteers have provided comfort and care to the families who stay with us. "It's as good as home." During the hardest time of their lives, volunteers make the experience at Family House so much better.

We send a big Thank You to over 1,700 volunteers who walk through our doors every year. As Family House moves to Mission Bay, our need for more dedicated, compassionate, quality volunteers will continue to grow. We are thrilled to be able to provide new opportunities for even more volunteers to get involved.

To all of our volunteers, thank you for making the choice to help provide families with community, comfort, and support to make them feel at home during their trying times.
