Hospice of the Comforter Foundation
Hospice needs the Community…and the Community needs Hospice! We are committed to changing lives for Hospice of the Comforter patients and their families facing end-of-life issues through philanthropy. Hospice of the Comforter cares for patients regardless of eligibility for Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. Since 1990, we have provided millions of dollars in non-reimbursed care so that everyone may benefit from hospice services during their end-of-life journey. The Foundation's goal is to ensure adequate financial resources, articulate the mission, and communicate needs and accomplishments to engage philanthropic support from the community.
There are so many ways to help – by being our advocate, giving, touring and volunteering. We invite you to get to know us by joining us for one of our Open Your Heart to Hospice tours
