What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Hospice Care

We provide care to patients and families facing life-limiting disease wherever they call home. Interdisciplinary team of professionals and volunteers provides interventions for physical, emotional, spiritual and social pain and symptoms resulting from terminal illness.

Population(s) Served

Patients and families with chronic or advanced illness, receive support and guidance from trained palliative care staff: nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners and social workers. The goal is to help patients control pain and manage disease symptoms while allowing them to seek curative treatment. Our team also works to ensure that patients have a listening ear and the touch of someone who cares in addition to their family members and caregivers.

Population(s) Served

We provide support and guidance for all in our community who grieve. Program includes availability of 1 on 1 counseling, literature, ongoing grief support groups, and community education programming regarding grief and loss. Programs are offered to the community at no-cost.

Population(s) Served

A grief and loss camp that provides therapeutic and supportive educational activities for children, age 8 to 12 years, who have experienced the loss of someone significant in their young lives.
Each camp is two full days of activities designed to both teach responses to grief and provide the opportunity to demonstrate their new coping skills. Activities are both group and individual based and in many cases the ratio of camper to support staff is 1:1. This allows for increased communication and expression. Activities include trail hikes, trust exercises, expressive activities and music.
On the last day, parents are invited to attend a workshop to provide strategies that they can use at home in grief support. The staff will also provide an assessment review to the family at the end of the camp. This provides additional insight and strategies for dealing with and supporting their child’s grief.

Population(s) Served
