There are four requirements to be eligible for a room at the House:
- The child/patient must be receiving in-patient or out-patient treatment at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford or Stanford Hospital and Clinics.
- The child/patient must be 18 years or younger, though children who have stayed at the House prior to their 18th birthday are able to use our facilities until they reach age 21.
- The family must live at least 50 miles away from the House. The distance requirement can be modified under certain conditions.
- A pregnant woman who needs to be near the hospital because her baby will need urgent surgery at birth may also stay at the House.
The House requests $10 per night from each family, though no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay. Third party payments are accepted.
