Our House, conveniently located on Kent Street in Brookline, is within walking distance of the Children’s Hospital Boston and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic. The House can accommodate up to 22 families each night.
• The Main House is a striking Victorian mansion, built in the late 1868. It is outfitted with nine bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen where families prepare meals, a communal dining area, living room, library, children’s playroom, six full baths, two half baths, laundry facilities, an outdoor play area.
• The Transplant Recovery House, the first of its kind in the country, was converted in 1985 from an existing Carriage House on the grounds to a facility with seven fully furnished studio apartments, designed to house young patients who have received a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Bone marrow and stem cell transplant surgery leaves the patient with a severely weakened immune system requiring a 60-90 day recuperation period. Our apartments allow the family to stay together while their post-transplant child’s immune system is strengthened. The Transplant Recovery House, with its seven self-contained studio apartments, provides the necessary environment for recovering patients, while still allowing children and their families the opportunity to recuperate in a comfortable home-like environment.
• The Annex: In 1994, due to the continued increase in demand for bone marrow and stem cell transplant recovery facilities, a $1 million expansion was successfully completed. The Annex was built to the back of the Main House and includes six additional studio apartments for those recovering from bone marrow or stem cell transplants.
