Family House is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable and supportive "home away from home" for patients and their families who have traveled to Pittsburgh to receive medical care at local hospitals. Our houses are nestled in the heart of the Pittsburgh medical community in the Oakland and Shadyside areas. House Volunteers work in four-hour shifts at each house doing a variety of tasks from answering the phone, checking in new guests, delivering clean linens and offering a warm welcome to those travelers who arrive in a strange city with so much on their minds. If you are interested in making a difference and joining our volunteer team please fill out an application at

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact our Manager of Volunteer Services Julia Homa or by phone 412-647-4917 or our Volunteer Engagement Fellow Josh Koletar - or by phone 412-647-5939.

*We are especially in need of people who can give time during the weekends but have shifts for everyone.
