Programs and Services
The House offers more than 20 programs and a variety of courtesy services to provide families with some fun and relaxation during chaotic times.
Our array of food programs includes our Home for Dinner program, in which corporate and community groups support families by cooking a healthy meal up to three or four nights a week. We offer food staples in our pantry, and adults and children can enjoy participating in our cooking classes.
Run by our amazing volunteers, our activity program creates a vibrant environment in the House that encourages imagination, fun and creativity. Activities include crafts, woodworking, cooking, games, pet visits, movie nights and holiday-themed parties.
Complimentary massages, yoga and workshops for parents on self-care and wellness help ease the burden on family members of all ages.
