Alyssa House Focuses on Children in Medical Crisis

In a feature done by The Daily Progress, The Drivers family of Charlottesville shared their struggles to search for affordable housing in Houston while seeking treatments for their daughter’s osteosarcoma. Alyssa Drivers passed away in 2012 at the age of 10 after battling the disease, but her family is on a mission to help others who face similar challenges.

The Alyssa House will provide affordable lodging for families who are in Charlottesville to get treatment for a child in a medical crisis.

 

The house on Elliott Avenue, owned by Sojourners United Church of Christ, will provide an option for families from outside the Charlottesville area who cannot stay in the University of Virginia’s Hospitality House — which only caters to adult patients — or are looking for a more intimate setting than the local Ronald McDonald House.

LOOK3 Returning to Charlottesville

The LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph is on its way back in town and representatives of the festival installed their 2016 'Tree's Exhibition' along the mall.

It features the work of a California-based Dutch photographer, Franz Lanting, who specializes in wildlife photography.

Organizers say this year’s festival will be bigger than ever and features more free activities like print sharing, walking tours and free Fathers Day family photos taken by professional photographers.
