House Happenings Activity Program
Sign-up today! Every night of the year Gift of Life Family House will host family activities. We are so excited to welcome groups from local corporations, schools, churches, synagogues, and the growing number of families that will come out to the Family House to give their time and care to help make the Family House "fun" for the transplant families that call it a "home away from home."
The House Happens Program provides a much-needed lift to our Family House and transplant families. Quality entertainment will help alleviate stress, give the opportunity of quality time spent together not focusing on health issues, and stimulate positive, hopeful feelings.
Some helpful activity ideas are:
- Arts and Crafts
- Board Games
- Interactive Wii Games
- Family Dance
- Story Time
- Cooking or Baking Classes
- Family Yoga
- Exercise Group
Family House activities will take place weeknights of the year from 7pm to 9pm and at various times on weekends. To volunteer your talents and skills for one of our Family Activity Nights, please read over our Activities Guidelines and House Rules. It is not required to receive full volunteer training for Family Activity Nights. You will find a schedule below, please locate an open night and fill out the online application below to register.
