ABOUT BRENT'S PLACE
Brent's Place is a long-term home away from home for children and families with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses while they receive treatment at local hospitals.
In addition to Safe-Clean housing, they also provide a variety of uniquely-tailored programs and services for the entire family designed to help in the healing process.
More than half of our patients are children receiving bone marrow transplants, but we also welcome children with long-term oncology needs and families facing a wide range of medical crises.
A small percentage of our patients are adults receiving bone marrow transplants and oncology care. They work with physicians and hospital social workers to determine who needs our services. Click here to learn more about the families they serve.

Masks are still very much required indoors for the tours, but not necessary for the outdoor work. If Brent's Place representatives come out to say hello to the volunteer group, we ask that volunteers have masks available should they be around a patient, even outdoors.
We are working to obtain porta potties and washing stations again this year. Should have confirmation in the coming days.
