The only facility of its kind between Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando, Quantum House provides a “caring place to call home” for families while their children are being treated for a critical illness or injury in Palm Beach County. When a child becomes seriously ill, the whole family suffers if the child must be hospitalized or receive treatment far from home. Quantum House helps relieve the stress and financial hardship that accompany the trauma of illness by providing temporary lodging and emotional support during a family crisis so parents may focus all their time and energy on their hospitalized children.
During the course of the year, service organizations are enlisted to prepare dinners for patients and their families. Although this may on the surface appear to be a simple act of kindness on their part, it represents a very strong gesture on the part of a caring community. This simple act allows families who may have had a very trying day, wind down and spend time with their child. Approximately once every quarter, it is an honor for the Jupiter Tequesta Kiwanis Club to be afforded the opportunity to be able to partake in this service project.
