Our Impact

In 2014/2015, Ryan Housed served a total of 252 children enrolled in the respite program. 156 children received a total of 411 respite stays where life-enhancing therapeutic activities were provided. 32 of these children were new admissions to the respite program. Top diagnoses of the children served included cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, mitochondrial disease, and brain deformation/trauma. Approximately 50% of children served were male and 50% were female; the majority of children receiving Hospice services were Hispanic. 28 children passed away at Ryan House.

How You Help

Figures are based off of our 2013/2014 audited financials.

In addition to serving the children with illnesses, we care for parents or guardians and siblings staying in the house. One hundred percent of families said that their child participated in meaningful activities during their respite stay.

We are 100% funded by donations. As a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, any donation made is tax deductible.
