There are many ways you can help the Family Houses at UC San Diego Health, including cooking a meal for our families, volunteering your time, adopting a family or making a financial contribution. Your support is deeply appreciated!
Make a Monetary Donation
Donations are vital so that we may continue to provide a "home away from home" for families with a loved one in the hospital. Donations can be made directly to Bannister Family House, La Jolla Family House, or in honor of an individual.
Give to Our Pantry!
Our families appreciate the small comforts of home while staying with us. Check out the list of items, from personal toiletries to kitchen supplies
that would help our home away from home feel even more welcoming.
Coming home to a warm meal brightens the day for our guests. Through hosted meals, families have a chance to connect and share their feelings and experiences with others staying at the house and the people providing the meal. Meals may be prepared in advance or cooked at the house by you or your volunteer group. Currently, we are only providing hosted meals at Bannister Family House. If you'd like to Host-A-Meal:
