From the heart: Small talk on big subjects Episode 4: Caring for families at Jeneece Place and Q̓ʷalayu House
Jeneece Place in Victoria, and Q̓ʷalayu House, opening July 12 in Campbell River, provide a welcoming, safe, and affordable place for families to stay close while their child receives specialized health care. These home-like environments also provide the opportunity to offer navigation supports so that families can access the very best care for their child after their stay. Foundation CEO Veronica Carroll is joined by Jeneece Place House Manager, Christina Peacock, for an update on how Jeneece Place has impacted the lives of Island families, and how we can expect Q̓ʷalayu House to change the lives of families in the north Island and surrounding islands.

Christina Peacock
House Manager @Jeneece Place
As House Manager at Jeneece Place, Christina is privileged to walk alongside families for a short while on their sometimes difficult and often joy-filled journeys. She and the staff team ensure the house is clean and inviting so that families can step through the front doors and feel secure, safe and at home. They do the household chores of cleaning and laundry, but families staying at the house remember Christina and the team more for being there to lend an ear, hear about a challenge, or share a joy in the family's day. In non-covid times, volunteers would be in the kitchen on a regular basis. They, and staff when there is time, cook and bake for families - and this is really appreciated by tired and sometimes overwhelmed parents.
