For Guests

Staff and volunteers at the SECU Family House work hard to make sure the House is as inviting and comfortable as possible, and to help you meet your needs during your stay.

If you or a loved one are in the hospital, and could benefit from a comfortable and affordable place to stay, then the SECU Family House is the place for you.  SECU Family House can accept guests only through a referral application submitted by a medical professional or service department at one of the following medical facilities.  To get a referral, inquire with your doctor, nurse, or the service department at your hospital.  Find specific departments and contact information here.

Please remember that the SECU Family House is a non-profit organization.  As a result, we request a rate of $35/room/night to offset costs, and to help support future families.  Applications for a reduced rate may be completed for consideration by referrals who are unable to pay the full rate.
