If we cannot add days to the life of a child, we will add life to their days.

As a nonprofit organization, the mission of Ladybug House is to build and operate a freestanding, community-based palliative care home for children in Seattle.

Our plan is to offer a place for respite and renewal to families and their children with life-limiting illnesses. Ladybug House will consist of an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, support staff, and volunteers who provide 24/7 care and support.

This care will be provided with no out of pocket cost, in a caring home-like environment.


Help Needed!

Seattle University College of Nursing has collaborated with Ladybug House to develop an online survey to document the experiences and needs of parents and caregivers of children & adolescents with life-limiting illnesses in Washington State.

Get a Ladybug beanie for completion of the survey! Simply email us at suzanne@ladybughouse.org after completing the survey.

Please help us by filling out and sharing this survey.
