Our large communal kitchen serves as the heart of Terry’s House! It’s where families support one-another, talk about their day, and most of all ... spend time healing together.

Here's how you can help! We are seeking volunteers to help with our "Host-A-Meal" program, which gives families the opportunity to enjoy a "home cooked meal" while they care for their loved one.

How does the "Host-A-Meal" program work? Easy! Select a date, plan a meal, show up, and serve! Meals can be prepared in-house, picked up at a local restaurant or catered.

What do you need to bring? Please bring the following for a 50 person meal: All ingredients, disposable silverware, plates, napkins, and cups. Decorations are optional, but always create an uplifting atmosphere.

Our kitchen is equipped with: Six cook-tops, two ovens, two microwaves, four crock-pots, pots, pans and cooking utensils.

How you will benefit? Whether you're an individual volunteer or with a group, you'll see the immediate impact your meal provides and gain valuable volunteer experience.

How to sign-up?
If you’re interested in providing a meal for Terry’s House, please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail our Volunteer Coordinator, Whitney Horn, at (559) 459-2648 or WHorn@communitymedical.org.

Mission Statement

Our home away from home provides an affordable, safe and supportive residence for families while loved ones receive care at Community Regional Medical Center. Our purpose is to keep families close in their time of need by providing a comfortable, convenient place to stay.

Description

Community Regional Medical Center has the only comprehensive burn and Level 1 trauma centers between Sacramento and Los Angeles. When a critically ill or injured patient arrives at Community Regional, family is usually close behind. Many families who come from out of town are already dealing with crisis and often left with no place to stay. Many can’t afford hotel rooms and restaurant meals for long stretches of time - especially when faced with unknown medical expenses. Thankfully there’s Terry’s House! Terry’s House is a 17,000-square-foot, 20-room hospitality home located adjacent to the hospital. It is a place where families can eat, sleep, cook and shower - helping families stay strong for their loved one in the hospital. Since 2011, we have served nearly 3,200 families from 42 states, 22 foreign countries and 3 U.S. Territories. Terry’s House is solely dependent on donations from the public.
