Help Shuttle Hope

Climb aboard this important campaign with your gift today to help us continue shuttling hope for families.

By supporting the purchase of the new passenger van, you will help ensure that our shuttle service continues to meet the needs of Family House

Last year, more than 4,600 Family House guests climbed aboard our six-passenger minivan driven by devoted volunteer drivers.

Our new vehicle, a Ford Transit, will have bus-like features including a wide folding entry door, low steps, a raised roof, and a center aisle to make it easier for our guests to get on and off. It will also have a cargo area for transporting oxygen and wheelchairs.

Unfortunately, guests were turned away from many trips because the van was full. The Family House must purchase a new 11-passenger vehicle to meet the increased need for shuttle service as occupancy grows, and to better provide for the comfort and well being of guests.

Our new shuttle will cost more than $50,000, not including gas, maintenance, and insurance. We are asking everyone in our Family House community to consider helping us make a new shuttle a reality.
