About Us

Our Organization

Wellness Place is a community-based, not-for-profit organization providing direct services to cancer survivors, their family and friends residing in the northwest suburban area of Chicago. Our facility with its professional staff and strong corps of volunteers offers at no charge educational lectures and seminars, stress management courses, weekly and monthly support groups, a growing resource center and lending library, and opportunities for social interaction.

Wellness Place is an independent, federal and state exempt organization that is not associated with any religious or medical organization. Rather, its establishment is the realization of a dream held by two area women who met during their recovery from breast cancer. What began as a grassroots effort has now grown into a community recognized by its dedication to empowering those living with cancer.

Our Philosophy

Wellness Place is a warm and inviting “home” offering comfort and renewal to all who visit.

Wellness Place offers information and resources along with support and skills to people whose lives have been impacted by cancer.

Wellness Place supports and complements conventional medical care and treatment, and individual religious preferences.

Wellness Place respects the individual needs of those facing cancer and supports, encourages and empowers participants to choose their own pathways to a better quality of life.

Wellness Place understands that the cancer experience is a family experience, making support available to the entire family.

Wellness Place programs and services are based on the model inspired by current research in the field of psycho-oncology and in collaboration with Wellness House in Hinsdale, Illinois.

Wellness Place is committed to ongoing assessment of effectiveness and continuous improvement in programs and services, and strives to remain on the leading edge of the emerging field of cancer support.
