​​Kiwanis Family House: Kiwanis Family House is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing temporary housing for families of seriously ill or injured patients being treated at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento or at Shriners Hospital. Patients and their families often have to travel long distances to receive treatment at the UC Davis Medical Center and Shriners Hospital. Finding low-cost lodging near the hospital can be important to these families, especially if the patient has a life-threatening injury or illness and if the treatment period lasts for an extended period of time. The Kiwanis Family House, located on UC Davis Medical Center grounds, offers inexpensive family accommodations – with individual bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms, food and clothes closets, laundry and hook-ups for recreational vehicles. We also have free internet access, free long-distance telephone calls, spiritual counseling, free parking and a free shuttle bus to the hospital. Kiwanis Clubs from around the Sacramento region provide financial and volunteer support for the facility. Our club has refurbished a room and has agreed to continue to support the Kiwanis Family House by pledging $25,000, payable over ten years.  $10,000 have already been contributed. This is just one of the many ways the Kiwanis Club of Auburn CA is “Serving the children of the world.”
