Our Mission

Family House provides a “home away from home” for patients and their families who must travel to Pittsburgh for medical care.


How we do it

By offering safe, convenient, affordable housing and a network of support, comfort, and compassion, Family House reduces emotional and financial stress for people dealing with medical crises in a city where they are strangers. Located within close proximity to area hospitals, Family House offers the comforts of home and convenience to loved ones at affordable rates. Whether here for cancer treatments, trauma care, or transplants, our services give families the peace-of-mind to focus on the care of those closest to them. At Family House, guests find respite after long days at the hospital and compassion from our staff and volunteers. Guests become a family, united in their journeys and similar circumstances. Family House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization governed by a community Board of Directors.
