WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Many families who travel far from home to be with loved ones who are in need of specialized medical care turn to the Ronald McDonald House for a place to stay, but that program is specifically for families with seriously-ill children.

A new facility in Winston-Salem is filling the needs of families with adult patients, as FOX8’s Julie Luck shows us in this week’s Inspired Living.

The SECU Family House costs as little as $10 a night and costs no more than $35 a night.  About 1,500 people have taken advantage of the program since it began about ten months ago.
