The Pete Gross House provides affordable housing, comfort and community to cancer patients and their families who require housing for 12 or more weeks. The house is named after the former "Voice of the Seahawks," play-by-play announcer Pete Gross, who died of cancer in 1992.
The Family Assistance Fund helps those who demonstrate a need for financial assistance with a wide range of daily, nonmedical expenses such as groceries, child care and transportation.
