George Mark Children's House in San Leandro is suspending in-patient programs, meaning dying children will no longer be able to stay there.
Most of the staff was laid off Tuesday. The few remaining will continue to provide out-patient services like grief counseling.
Since opening in 2004, George Mark has provided respite care for the families of terminally-ill kids.
Directors hope to re-open after the summer, if they can get contracts with insurance providers.
