    Jill's House, Inc. is named in honor of Jill Behrman, a Bloomington resident who was abducted while riding her bicycle in the year 2000, and in honor of Steven Howard, who lost his battle with cancer at age 19.

“The primary feature of Jill’s House is what you can’t see. It’s the caring environment, and the camaraderie the guests have with and for each other.”

Jill’s House, Inc provides affordable, temporary housing in a home-like environment for caregivers and patients receiving medical treatment in the Bloomington area. Most of the guests staying at Jill’s House are patients at the Indiana University Health Proton Therapy Center, one of only six proton treatment facilities in the country. Proton therapy is used primarily to treat cancer. To accommodate families who travel long distances to be treated at the facility, Jill’s House has guest rooms with private bathrooms, a playroom for children, an exercise room, and other amenities of home such as a private phone line and messaging service for each room.
