Meals for Munchkins

After a long day at the hospital, enjoying a nutritious dinner is the best therapy for families. Various organizations and groups have volunteered to make home-cooked meals for those staying at the House through our Meals for Munchkins program.

Thank You to Our Design Partners and San Francisco Design Center!

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has helped make Where Hope has a Home: Interior Design Tours a great success!

Thanks to Where Hope Has a Home, the year-long collective efforts of 48 designers and San Francisco Design Center, our new House expansion has been transformed into an oasis of tranquility and hope. Our amazing new House is gaining notice and being appreciated as a masterpiece of design intended to impart comfort and love to families caring for critically ill children.

We're especially proud that Where Hope Has a Home has been featured in a 30-page spread in the premier designer magazine San Francisco Cottages & Gardens February edition. Click the image above to view stunning photographs of some of the House's family suites and common areas.

GV treats House families to a special screening of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"

The Force was strong at the House as delighted families were whisked away under Imperial guard courtesy of GV for a private showing of the year's most anticipated film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". For immune-compromised children staying at Ronald McDonald House at Stanford, the special showing was much more than a convenience--it was their only opportunity to safely see the blockbuster hit in a theater.

KTVU News was on hand to capture the reaction of House families, including the Bingham family, who have two children who have received heart transplants, and another on the transplant waiting list, and teenager Luis Garcia, a huge Star Wars fan who is battling brain cancer.

Thank you, GV for your generosity, and may the Force be with you!
