Kiwanis Family House

Together is Better

The Kiwanis Family House has been providing critical services to families experiencing medical crisis for over 40 years.

At Kiwanis Family House we help families heal

one night at a time

Our House is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week because medical emergencies don’t follow a time schedule. Guests can check in when they need it most, and don’t have to worry about cancelled reservations.

Kiwanis Family House Facility

Our mission

Created in 1984 to fill a gap in the needs of our community, our mission is to

support families in their healing

by providing temporary, low-cost housing to families who have loved ones being treated for serious conditions at UC Davis Medical Center or Shriners Hospital for Children-Northern California.

We provide a home away from home so people and families can focus on the medical attention they or their loved ones need.

How KFH works:

KFH has 32 rooms and 6 full-service RV spaces on our property. Every room has a private bath, shared kitchen, shared dining and living spaces and beautiful outdoor patios.

Our fee is $50 per night, but we never turn anyone away based on their ability to pay.

Our reservations can only be made through a referral by your medical social worker. Once we receive your referral, we will make a reservation on your behalf. If we are at capacity, we will put you on our waiting list and contact you as soon as we have an opening. Guests can stay as long as they need to, and can return as often as needed to get the medical care they need.
