Bridging the Gap: Announcing our 2019-2020 Annual Campaign for $1 Million

SECU Family House at UNC Hospitals is excited to announce our 2019-2020 Annual Campaign for $1 Million, “Bridging the Gap.” Every day at Family House, volunteers, donors, community members, and staff members bridge the gap between what we ask our guests to pay ($45) and the true operating cost of a room ($95). By raising $1 Million by June 30, 2020, Family House will ensure 2,200 patients and their caregivers can stay with us this fiscal year.

Guests like Anna from Boiling Springs, NC know all too well the gaps that must be bridged when an illness strikes. Hear about the impact of Family House in her words:

“Last December, I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). After a bone marrow transplant in March of 2019, I had to spend one hundred days away from home to visit my medical team in Chapel Hill three times a week. Ninety of those hundred days were spent at SECU Family House. As soon as I arrived at Family House, I felt like a weight was lifted from my mind.

Everyone was so encouraging. I was most relieved that my parents, who were staying with me, felt so comfortable and made plenty of friends with other guests and staff. I loved hearing from my folks about how much they enjoyed the meals each day or who had spent time chatting with them on the porch each evening.  Thank you, SECU Family House at UNC Hospitals.”

Your gift to the 2029-2020 Annual Campaign bridges the gap to high quality healthcare for guests from all 100 counties in North Carolina, 44 states, and 9 countries. Click here to give now.
