Why we need Terry's House 

When a critically ill or injured patient arrives at Community Regional Medical Center, family is usually close behind. Terry’s House, located directly across the street from Community Regional in downtown Fresno, is our hospitality “home-away-from-home” for families of critical-care patients. Built in 2011 and funded solely on donations, Terry’s House is a place where families can eat, sleep and recharge while they wait to bring their loved ones home from the hospital.

Community Regional covers a 15,000 square-mile service area, roughly the size of Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Jersey combined. Many patients come from outside of the Central Valley and their families must be away from home for extended periods of time, making it difficult for some to pay to stay in a hotel. Terry’s House provides an understanding and supportive environment to make it possible for families to stay close to their loved one in their time of need.

Why Terry's House needs YOU

The sustainability of Terry’s House is entirely dependent upon private gifts and contributions and we need your

support. You can help by giving online or by calling Community Medical Foundation at 559.459.2670.

For more information regarding volunteer opportunities at Terry’s House, please call 559.459.2648 or email Christa Short at cshort@communitymedical.org.

Unique ways to give

Terry’s House is entirely dependent on charitable contributions and those who donate do so in many different ways. Some donate a gift in kind like food coupons or daily necessary household items for those in residence. Others have donated furniture or have paid for a family’s lodging needs. Or become a member of Operation Terry’s House, an annual giving program to help sustain the home’s daily operations.

The Leon S. Peters Host Family Program

This program is designed to help families pay for lodging they could not otherwise afford in order for them to stay close to a loved one in critical care at Community Regional.

If you are interested in helping families in need through the Leon S. Peters Host Family Program, please contact us at 559.459.2670 or
