Family House

The Family House, located on the Austin State Hospital campus, provides low-cost overnight accommodations for up to four families of patients currently receiving services at the hospital. Operated through the Community Relations department, the Family House is available 24 hours a day, every day of the week arranged through an ASH social Worker.. Access to the Family House during hours other than 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. is prearranged through the ASH switchboard.

The house was originally the Superintendent's residence and has generously allowed this home to be used by families visiting loved ones. Our Volunteer Service Council has put a tremendous effort into furnishing this house through donations and fundraising efforts. T
