Providing comfort, caring and compassion

SECU Family House is an overnight facility for out-of-town patients receiving medical care at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.









The SECU (acronym for “State Employees Credit Union) Family House at New Hanover Regional Medical Center offers support and lodging for family and friends of patients being cared for at NHRMC, as well as for patients who must travel to the area for outpatient medical treatment. Located just a short distance from the hospital’s main campus, the nonprofit SECU Family House asks for only $40 per room per night to offset costs.  

Our chapter became involved with the Family House in 2010. Volunteers currently coordinate special dinners on a quarterly basis, as well as provide Thanksgiving and December Holiday meals for the guests, who are so appreciative to have a delicious dinner waiting for them when they come back from a long day at the hospital.

Besides providing meals, we also enhance the outside décor of the building by planting flowers in the spring and fall.  We have also contributed to their wish list by planting two new trees for the front of the building.

Families stay here while loved ones are in the hospital.

Quarterly dinners are waiting for them when they return from the hospital.

Our volunteers plant flowers to add a little extra cheer to the SECU Family House.
