My daughter & I lived at Brent's Place from May 2004 until September 2004. We are from Montana and didn't have many visitors while we were living in Denver. Brent's Place was our 'home away from home' with meals, games and new friends. We were from a town of about 2500 people so Denver was slightly overwhelming! The staff was wonderful and so helpful in assisting us in finding things to do and places to visit that were "safe". I cannot say enough about how wonderful Brent's Place was! I only wish that we could live closer so that we could provide a meal now and then!

Oh my! Where to start! There just are no words that can accurately describe how amazing and loving Brents Place is! Our family was shown an out pouring of love and support from everyone that we came in contact with at Brent's. No way would we have made it thru the toughest time in our lives without them. They have it all figured out! They know what to do, when to do it, and what to say! If they don't .... they find out! They are a bright shining star for so many families at some of the darkest times in their life! Wish there were more Brent's Places in this world! Love them and thank them for all they have done and do!

The amazingness (is that a word) of this foundation cannot be stated enough. The generosity of housing while living far from home help us not lose our home...literally we were able to continue with our house payments because we did not have to pay for Brent's. The support, love, kindness, and complete understanding that the staff show each and every person (the sick kid and the siblings, not to mention the parents) is a life-saver. I literally cried on shoulders and had hugs and tenderness when my fears were at their highest. There really are not enough words in the English language to express my gratitude for Brent Eley and his family. You are changing lives every single day!

We are from New Mexico and we lived at Brent's Place for 6 months while our son underwent a bone marrow transplant. If not for Brent's I believe we would have lost our house and gotten divorced. They truly saved us from disaster, not to mentioned cared for us with the mist generous and loving spirits.

I love that we actually see how valuable each dollar is and how much these families appreciate what is done by this amazing group at Brents Place cares. I have worked with other charities that were not so selfless and appreciative

An incredible organization unlike any other that I have volunteered at. The mission.....kid's with cancer......of course, it is easy to get behind and support the organization based on the mission alone. However, the organization is run like a business and it shows.......not in a rough, rigid way but in a way that makes me OK with donating my time and money because the organization makes solid decision after solid decision after solid decision and they have done that year in and year out for the last 7 years that I have been involved.

The staff is incredible and is beyond appreciative when I come in to volunteer. I am so blown away by the organization, I got my company and staff involved.......and other friends as well. I can't say enough GREAT things about Brent's Place. The staff, the mission, the business sense of their founders, staff, board, etc. etc. If you are considering donating or volunteering you can do that without any hesitation or reservations - this place is incredible!!!

We stayed at Brent's Place for around 1.5 years when our daughter was diagnosed with cancer. People there took so much off our shoulders, so our family could concentrate on dealing with doctors and treatments. Warm hearts is what describes Brent's Place staff and volunteers the best. We are very much grateful !

Best staff! They are all kind caring and involved with the kids and family. Everyone steps up and helps the family with what they need. Volunteers are the Best! They help with wonderful meals, fun activities for the kids and fundraisers.
We felt very safe, cared for and included in an extended family, a wonderful experience during a difficult time.

Brent's Place is not only a warm and loving home to so many families, it's home to my heart as well. Everyone there is full of altruistic love and are just plain amazing souls. The staff is a family, and they truly care about each and every person who stays there. I'm blessed to be associated with such a spirit-filled, wonderful organization. What a legacy Brent is celebrated with.

We donated BraveHoods to the kids and their siblings at Brent's Place and we have had a booth at several events of theirs. I am always so impressed with the organization, but I must say I was blown away when I stopped by to drop off the shirts. The facility is homey and inviting but also super clean and professional. The staff that I met were fantastic and you can really tell they love what they do.
