Brent’s Place Too

Prescient took on building Brent’s Place Too, a second long-term housing and support center for pediatric cancer patients and their families that will help alleviate the need for more space and services.

Since 2009, Brent’s Place in north Aurora had provided a temporary home away from home for children and their families who are going through treatment for cancer at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado and need to be as close as possible to their doctors before and after treatments like chemotherapy or bone marrow transplants. Brent’s Place Too doubled the number of patients seen annually at Brent’s Place to about 200. It includes 17 family apartments that each have two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a living room and a balcony; four studio suites; a movie and game room, play areas, outdoor recreational space, a kitchen and laundry rooms on every floor. There is no cost for the families to live at Brent’s Place while their child is receiving treatment.
