The People Behind the Place

David’s House is a warm and welcoming home because of the people who keep the doors open 365 days a year.


David’s House is able to operate with a very small paid staff because of the wonderful volunteers who donate immeasurable time and talents. Our volunteers come from all walks of life but have one thing in common, their unwavering commitment to supporting families experiencing the stress that comes from having a child (or children) in the hospital.

Board of Directors

Our board of directors is a body of elected members who jointly oversee and steer the direction and health of David’s House. They donate their time and energy, and like all volunteers, their dedication to our mission is unshakable.

Our president emeritus is Dick Cyr, David’s father and the founder of David’s House. He is still heavily involved and passionate about our mission.
