No family should have to worry about housing or basic needs while their child is ill. Thanks to the FedEx Family House, families who have traveled to receive treatment at LeBonheur Children's Hospital don't have to. The FedEx Family House has been a part of the Memphis fabric for seven years thanks to Susan Graf and FedEx but it continues on with the hearts and hands of the community.

The Memphis Hope House fulfilled this objective because it is an organization providing services and education to HIV- affected individuals and their families. After reaching out to the coordinator of this program, we were given a list of their greatest needs.
