How Families Arrive
Dealing with a child’s illness is not easy. We believe that families travelling from out of town to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital should not have to deal with the added stress of finding a place to stay while caring for their loved ones.
Our mission at FedExFamilyHouse is to provide cost-free housing for families of patients receiving treatment at Le Bonheur.
We take care of the little things so families can take care of their little ones.

Donate to FedExFamilyHouse
Did you know it costs $100 to house a family at FedExFamilyHouse for just one night? We’ve served more than 10,000 families at no cost to them since opening in December 2010. Your gifts will allow us to serve many more in years to come.
Want to lend your time and talents to FedExFamilyHouse?! We have multiple opportunities for you that will help us meet the families’ needs. Read the Volunteer Opportunities page to see a full list of options and then click the ‘Volunteer’ button to fill out and submit an e-form. We’ll contact you and get you started!
FedExFamilyHouse Good Neighbors
Not all volunteer opportunities have to be done at the FedExFamilyHouse. The FEFH Good Neighbor opportunities are ones that you or your group can do at your location and still make a huge impact on supporting the families. Programs like Stock the Pantry, Pack a Welcome Bag, Fill the FEFH Special Delivery Box and Make This House a Home can easily be done by individuals and groups alike. You can also address thank you cards for the volunteers, hold a local fundraiser or create your own project that would serve the families. For example, one church made blankets for families to use at the house and at the hospital.
