David's House is the dream of a little boy...

named David Cyr who passed away at age five after a three-and-a-half-year struggle against Acute Lymphatic Leukemia. Built so that families can remain together when it is most crucial,

Home when you can't be home


A Letter from the Olmstead Family

My daughter is a six year old girl who struggles with epilepsy. We had to go to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center to have a routine EEG done, and that's when we stayed for the first time at David's House. We were overwhelmed with the generosity and kindness the staff and volunteers showed. Even the guests were very kind and social! Arianna felt very at home, running from room to room, finding new things to read and play with. She found a few new kids to play with, too. [...]

As we woke the next morning, we heard the gobbles from wild turkeys as they passed our window. Arianna said, "I want to live here, mom. I had fun!" So again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everyone's compassion. We hope to visit again, soon!
