Terry's House welcomes volunteers to host a meal for the families staying.
Terry’s House is a 17,000-square-foot, two-story hospitality home on the corner of Fresno and R streets in downtown Fresno. Located across the street from Community Regional Medical Center, the home opened in January 2011 and provides lodging for families of patients in critical care units at the hospital. Community Regional treats the most critically ill and injured from a nine county, 15,000 square-mile-region – an area almost as big as Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Jersey combined. These patients are often hospitalized for long periods of time. The distance between home and the hospital makes it difficult for them to get the loving family support they need to heal. Terry’s House aims to keep families close by providing an affordable, supportive, family centered residence for out- of-town families while their loved ones receive critical care. The home operates on a first-come, first-served basis and uses a waiting list when it is full. Families in need of Terry’s House are identified by hospital personnel or physicians, and the patient’s care coordinator works with Terry’s House staff to facilitate the family’s stay. Families stay at Terry’s House for $30 a night. The Leon S. Peters Host Family Program helps support families with limited means of staying in the home.
