The House was created by volunteers with big hearts and even bigger dreams.
Today, caring volunteers still lend their time and talents to every part of our House. Volunteers can take on group and individual activities as well as short-term, long-term, or one-time projects. There are lots of ways we can match your skills and interests to help kids and families battling cancer.

"This place is more than somewhere to go every week to volunteer but a place to feel good and give back. Going to the house is as much fun for me as it is for these kids."
