For over 40 years, Family House San Francisco has provided free temporary housing to families whose children are receiving treatment at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. More than just housing – it’s a home away from home, providing a supportive community and caring environment for the entire family while their child is undergoing treatment. Thanks to the generous philanthropic support of individual donors, corporations, and foundations, Family House San Francisco provides all services 100% free of cost, for as long as needed while a child is undergoing treatment.
Located in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, the organization sustains nearly a 100% occupancy rate and can accommodate over 80 families per night, serving more than 4,000 families each year. Family House honored Pat Monahan and Train at their 2021 Gala called Rock The House that celebrated the band’s unparalleled generosity and contribution to the organization.
Over the years, the band Train has made regular visits to Family House, performing for the families, and volunteering their time. In 2011, Train launched the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company, which was created to bring to life the band's passion for connecting with friends and fans through music and wine, with the added goal of raising funds and awareness for Family House and the incredible work they do. The band’s 2016 project Train Does Led Zeppelin II, a cover album in tribute of their favorite band, saw 100% of the band’s proceeds going to Family House. Proceeds from these projects and the ongoing sales of the wine benefit Family House.
Lisa Foxx interviewed Family House CEO Alexandra Morgan to talk all about the wonderful ways these folks help families in the scariest of times AND how the band Train has truly fueled so much LOVE into their efforts. Every time you support this band and buy their wines, you are helping families and their kids who are very sick. For more information, FamilyHouseInc.org.
