ABOUT BRENT’S PLACE

Brent's Place—the primary program of the Brent Eley Foundation (BEF) — is a long-term home away from home for families who have a loved one with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses while they receive treatment at local hospitals, providing a place of hope and healing. In addition to Safe-Clean housing, we provide a variety of uniquely tailored programs and support for the entire family designed to help in the healing process. 

Who We Serve

We serve families with a loved one (children and adults) receiving bone marrow transplants, long-term oncology treatments, experimental treatments, and a wide range of other long term-medical crises. We work with physicians and hospital social workers to determine who needs our services. 

Our Approach

In providing a home away from home for our families we focus on four key areas:

·        Physical Well-Being – Brent’s Place is, above all, a Safe-Clean haven for families who are far from home seeking life-saving medical treatment. We are one of the only long-term housing options capable of supporting an entire family during the long treatment process. Because we believe that together is always better, Brent’s Place helps families stay together so that they may simply be together.

·        Financial Security – Families staying at Brent's Place receive unlimited support, but never a bill. This allows them to focus on recovery and their family’s well-being rather than the steep cost of relocation, housing, and food. Reducing expenses during treatment has long-term benefits and enables families to return home with a greater sense of financial security.

·        Psychological Well-Being – Patients and families fighting serious illness face significant emotional trauma. The programs at Brent’s Place are designed to help each resident cope with the stress and anxiety associated with their medical journey. This support allows residents to focus on self-care and healing and may even help serve as protection against future mental health crises.

·        Family Life – A medical crisis has the power to break families apart, but Brent’s Place is here to protect them. We recognize that the continuation of everyday routines and family traditions provide stability for parents and children when their lives have been uprooted. We believe that offering families a warm and welcoming home away from home, as well as opportunities to create happy memories, builds love, trust, and resiliency. This foundation strengthens families during treatment - and for a lifetime.

Brent’s Place is a special family, who live by the values of compassion, integrity, respect, responsibility, and quality of life—we are looking for new team members to join us. If our mission and approach speak to your heart, keep reading.
