Jeneece Place is a temporary home where families can stay while their children are receiving medical care in Victoria, B.C., Canada. The home away from home was the dream of Jeneece Edroff, a visionary young woman who has lived with a debilitating genetic disease since childhood. Many businesses, organizations, and individuals made generous donations in order to make Jeneece's dream come true and build this home for Island families.
Owned and operated by Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island, Jeneece Place is located on the grounds of the Victoria General Hospital, a two-minute walk to the main entrance. The house has ten bedrooms, a communal kitchen, dining, living, games and media rooms, and an outdoor area where kids can play. Whether families stay for one night or several months, the feedback is always the same: at a time of dire need, Jeneece Place housed them, supported them, and nurtured them, and they don’t know what they would have done without it.
Jeneece Place is owned and operated by Children's Health Foundation of Vancouver Island. The Foundation raises funds to help children with disabilities and health challenges on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.
