I have a client that wants to have a home network that each member of the family can set down at any computer and login to their own desktop.
Can Microsoft 2012 R2 foundation accomplish this? and/ or is there a better solution?

Yes it can based on this http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj679892.aspx
but personally I wouldn't do it although depending on circumstances

I'd get Synology NAS (cheaper, reliable, power consumption, can do Directory service as well) for media, pictures and all that and W8.1 for file sync within OneDrive from Microsoft. They'd also have it available on mobile devices and wouldn't have to rely on home network provider, which is usually slow.
