Mission Statement

The SECU Family House is a caring and compassionate alternative to sleeping in a waiting room or an expensive hotel when faced with an out-of-town medical crisis. The Family House offers an affordable place to stay, support from staff and volunteers, and an array of ammenities to help caregivers and patients get through their medical crisis. Volunteers help make the Family House "more than just a place to stay."

Would you recommend SECU Family House?

by Vicki H. (February 4, 2020)
As part of my Americorps service we had to volunteer for another nonprofit for MLK service day. I choose to bake cookies for the SECU Family House. This was a fun experience that I would like to do again and possibly with my children the next time around. We baked two huge batches of delicious cookies using the recipes and ingredients provided. The kitchen is very nice and well equipped with everything you need. While we were baking one of the house guest came in and we chatted for a bit. It was heartwarming to hear her story and how this charity has benefited her family during such a hard time. As a daughter to two parents that suffered through many illnesses I could empathize with what she was going through. It is nice to know they are there providing comfortable accommodations to family members that are caring for ill family members much like the Ronald McDonald House but adult patients. I would recommend this experience to anyone because they have many different ways you can help.
