Jill's House, Inc. is an independent not-for-profit organization, established in response to a need for affordable, temporary housing for out-of-town patients receiving cancer treatment at the Indiana University Health Proton Therapy Center in Bloomington, Indiana. In late 2010, Jill's House, Inc. expanded its mission to include the provision of home-like accommodations to caregivers and patients receiving treatment for physical illnesses at all area health care facilities.
There are only eight proton treatment facilities in operation in the country in addition to the Indiana University Health Proton Therapy Center: in Massachusetts, California, Texas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois and Virginia. Bloomington's Proton Therapy Center offers access to this state-of-the-art treatment for those residing in the mid-section of the country, and beyond. Similar to a Ronald McDonald House or Hope Lodge, Jill's House has been specifically designed to provide a comfortable residence and supportive environment for outpatients (and their accompanying caregivers), and is easily accessible from most major thoroughfares in the Bloomington area.
Jill's House, Inc. is named in honor of Jill Behrman, an Indiana University student and beloved Bloomington resident. She was abducted while riding her bicycle on the morning of May 31, 2000. Her remains were found in a wooded area northwest of Bloomington nearly three years later. In remembering Jill Behrman, and the anguish associated with her disappearance, Jill's House strives to be a place of comfort and peace for others who are suffering.
