Stay With Us

From the moment you enter our doors, we want your family to be comfortable. But most importantly, we want to provide you the comfort and support you need so you can focus on the most important thing — your child. Temporary housing is offered for family members who will be directly involved with the daily support of the patient. Depending on room size, maximum occupancy is 3 to 5 people, including children.

  • Have a single patient 21 years or younger that’s being treated at a Gainesville hospital
  • Live outside Alachua County
  • Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent or a legal guardian

All adults 18 years or older requesting to stay overnight must:

  • Agree to a criminal background check and meet RMHCNCF screening standards
