Welcome to Kiwanis Family House Week hosted by your KFH Ambassador, Erica Wei, and the FiFun Committee!
✨What is the Kiwanis Family House? ✨
Kiwanis Family House was built through efforts of several Kiwanis club volunteers from the Sacramento area, the Kiwanis Family House provides affordable, temporary housing and support to families of seriously ill or injured children and adults being treated at UC Davis Medical Center or Shriners Hospital in Sacramento, CA.Their vision is to consistently provide convenient, restful, secure, and low cost accommodations for their residents. The Kiwanis Family House is a home-away-from-home for those families who don’t have a home that’s close by.
