OUR DONORS 02
Our donors leave a legacy of caring.
As a not-for-profit residential hospice, we rely on donations to allow us to care for residents who may not have access to health insurance or sufficient financial resources. As many of our donors know, hospice isn’t just about the residents. Hospice care is also important for the loved ones of our residents. Providing a warm, welcoming place for everyone to make their last days, weeks or months the best they can be is a priority we all share.
