To provide stability, shelter and support for families seeking cancer care in the Texas Medical Center
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 their cancer journey. We are a 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 of 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 - at no cost to the families we serve.
Why We Serve
We are cancer survivors, caregivers and the loved ones of cancer patients. We have lived the journey, and for 21+ 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.
