Vision and Mission of the Rotary Fire Fighters Home

The mission of the Rotary Fire Fighters Home (RFFH) is to provide temporary, fully-furnished housing at little or no cost to fire fighters, their families or other firstresponders while they are undergoing treatment at The Texas Medical Center (TMC). This housing will help mitigate a large portion of the financial burden associated with short-term housing required while receiving out-patient treatment.

WHO WE SERVE

Needs of the Fire Fighter Community We Address:

RFFH housing is open to fire fighters, first responders or immediate family members of a firefighter or first responder, who is undergoing active treatment at the Texas Medical Center (TMC). Both professional and volunteer fire fighters may apply. There are no other restrictions based on gender, age, religion, national origin, financial status or language. Nor are there any restrictions as to residence.

WHY THE NEED?

The Unique Medical Issues Faced by Our Fire Fighters

Fire fighters have occupational risks from exposure to toxins and hazardous chemicals. As a result, fire fighters suffer illnesses, particularly cancers, at a statistically higher rate than the average population. Specialized treatment for these illnesses often requires an extended stay near the Texas Medical Center. The cost of hotels and short-time housing for patients and their families coming to Houston for such treatment can be crippling and health insurance usually does not cover lodging expenses.

HOW CAN YOU HELP

Your Donations Impact the Lives of Our Fire Fighters

The Rotary Fire Fighters Home can only help our first-responders with your help! We need donations to cover the costs of hosting fire fighter families. There’s already a growing wait-list of fire fighters in need of medical care. Our ability to meet those needs are limited only by your donations.

We also need volunteers. Those with time and interest to help work with firefighter families, help maintain our current housing facilities and to support our fundraising efforts. Everything from electrical and plumbing skills to Social Media and interior design skills is needed.

There’s also a need for those who can open doors. Do you have access to a club or organization that can offer volunteers? Or perhaps a company willing to provide materials or support setting up and maintain our housing facilities? We need those who can help us make connections and spread the work.
