SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Family House will hold its first-ever crowdfunding campaign to raise $100,000 for the new Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House in Mission Bay. In partnership with the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Train, “Calling All Angels” will generate funds needed to support ALL families who need free, temporary housing while their children are being treated for cancer and other critical illnesses at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. The campaign runs through Wednesday, June 4th at indiegogo.com/projects/calling-all-angels. The new Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House in Mission Bay will have 80 bedrooms and provide housing for 4,000 families each year, more than double current capacity.
“Helping and relating to children has always been a priority for us (Train). Being a local cause and helping kids and their families when they need it the most is something we profoundly admire, and there's not a more caring staff from the top down. Visit Family House and you'll leave feeling the same way. We are so proud to be associated with the Bay Area Family House.” – The Train Band members

About Family House
Founded in 1981, Family House is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing free, temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the University of California San Francisco Benioff Children's Hospital. Qualifying families live more than 50 miles from UCSF, and many live at or below the low-income status as determined by UCSF. Our current, two locations sustain nearly a 100% occupancy rate and can accommodate 107 people per night. Over the course of a year, we serve more than 2,000 families. Family House receives no financial support from UCSF, or any other public entity, and relies solely on the generous contributions of individuals, corporations and foundations.
