We are a nonprofit hospitality house offering affordable temporary lodging to Brooks patients and their caregivers.
Helen’s House is named in honor of Helen Brown, the wife of Brooks founder J. Brooks Brown, MD. Helen was a welcoming and gracious host who made everyone she met feel like they were part of the family.
The house is managed by Gabriel House of Care, a local nonprofit that provides lodging for patients and their families recovering from serious illnesses in a “Community of Healing” environment.
This concept is unique to hospitality houses and will be duplicated in Helen’s House as we incorporate supportive programs to help our guests cope with the stress of their difficult medical circumstances.
Initially, these programs will include Mindfulness for Stress Management, Tai Chi and Art Therapy, as well as our Chef’s Night In program where community businesses and associations provide dinners for our guests.
