To meet increased demand for hospice and palliative care, Center for Hospice Care is building a new inpatient care facility on our Mishawaka campus. This new facility will feature 12 large patient bedrooms, all facing the scenic St. Joseph River. Will you help us make it happen?
Please join us on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 6:00pm at the Hilton Garden Inn – Gillespie Center in South Bend as we honor Catherine Hiler during our annual Helping Hands Award Dinner.
But what truly matters is the impact on the few or the one.
To ensure that Center for Hospice Care (CHC) is prepared to meet the needs of our communities long into the future, CHC is in the midst of its most ambitious comprehensive campaign ever – $10 million. We’ve exceeded expectations in certain areas of the campaign, while other areas still need considerable support. In fact, we still have several critical underfunded priorities highlighted below. Please read more and consider giving to the one that touches you most.
To learn more about the campaign, please visit the Crossroads Campaign page. Thank you!
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Vera Z. Dwyer Charitable Trust, we have received a $1 million matching grant to support hospice and palliative education. To receive the full match, we need your support.
This unique bereavement program helps those who have lost a loved one process their grief through a combination of counseling and artistic expression. The opportunity to create artwork during each session helps our clients better understand, articulate and process their grief.
Each year, dozens of area kids gather at Camp Evergreen. These kids are all different, but they do have one thing in common – they have all lost a loved one. By enabling kids to share their grief, and participate in traditional camp activities, Camp Evergreen helps them heal.
