Our Hospice House will operate at no charge to the resident. We are completely donor supported but that includes family and friends of our guest. The daily cost of caring for our residents is about $300 per day, per resident. We invite our residents, and their family and friends, to contribute more or less as their resources allow.
We rely on the generosity of individuals, local businesses, grant programs, and foundations to support our work. Admission to Our Hospice House is not based on income level or ability to pay.
Help us provide compassionate end-of-life care for our residents.
