A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Whether you are a native Houstonian or traveling from across the country, A Shelter for Cancer Families prides itself in meeting families where they are in your cancer journey. We are the shelter for families who need a safe and comfortable home away from home, and the support and stability they need along the way.

Who We Serve

We open our doors wide to all cancer families regardless age, cancer type, income or where they are in their cancer journey. We respect their time, dignity, and privacy, while providing options and amenities that meet the specific needs of a family living through cancer.

Why We Serve

We are cancer survivors, caregivers and the loved ones of cancer patients. We have lived the journey, and for more than 20 years, we have been a home, navigator and champion for cancer families.

How To Help

ASCF was founded on the belief that every cancer family deserves the opportunity to focus on their care without the additional burden of worrying where they will stay, how they will navigate and if they will miss celebrating important milestones along the way. Volunteers and donors make this all possible.
