Our Mission
Vision and Mission of the Rotary Firefighters Home

The mission of the Rotary Fire Fighters Home (RFFH) is to provide temporary, fully-furnished housing at little or no cost to firefighters, their families or other first responders 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 Do We Serve?

We provide support to firefighters and first responders receiving treatment at the Texas Medical Center.

Why The Need?

Firefighters have occupational risks from exposure to toxins and hazardous chemicals.  As a result, firefighters suffer illnesses, particularly cancers, at a statistically higher rate than the average population.

How We Help

We provide temporary, fully-furnished housing at little or no cost, to firefighters and first responders while they are being treated at the Texas Medical Center.

Rotary Fire Fighters Home is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable corporation

Who We Serve
Needs of the Firefighter Community We Address

RFFH housing is open to firefighters, first responders or immediate family members of a firefighter or first responder, who are undergoing active treatment at the Texas Medical Center (TMC). Both professional and volunteer firefighters 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 Firefighters

Firefighters have occupational risks from exposure to toxins and hazardous chemicals. As a result, firefighters 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 You Can Help
Your Donations Impact the Lives of Our Firefighters

The Rotary Fire Fighters Home can help our firefighters and first responders with your help!

We need Donors, Doers and Door-Openers:

Donors:  Donations are needed to cover the costs of housing firefighters. We have a growing wait-list of firefighters in need of short-term housing. Our ability to meet those needs are limited only by your donations. CLICK HERE to make a donation.

Doers:  Volunteers are always needed! If you have a skill, we can use you!   Some of our volunteer needs are: serving as an Ambassador by being the friendly face while the firefighter is in town;  supporting our fundraising efforts, such as conducting mini-fundraisers, or helping with the annual gala; serving as our Public Relations person to help us get the news out about our endeavor;  helping us revise our printed media, assisting us with updating our videos; helping us gather statistics on firefighters with cancer; and of course helping us actually build our home! If you have the skill, and the willingness to help, we can use YOU! CLICK HERE to Volunteer.

Door Openers: We need folks 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 maintaining our housing facilities?
