HOW WE HELP

Our sole mission is to support Jefferson Healthcare Hospice, in Jefferson County, Washington, through funding programs and services, sponsorship of educational events, and promoting community understanding of end-of-life care. When a person is no longer receiving curative treatment, Hospice provides end-of-life care and allows patients to have the best quality of life possible throughout any life-limiting illness.

Jefferson Healthcare Hospice is licensed by the state of Washington and is Medicare and Medicaid certified. The founding members of the foundation recognized that reimbursement by Medicare and other insurances alone does not meet the financial needs for providing comprehensive and holistic hospice services. The foundation ensures that holistic hospice care is available to our community which includes comfort care needs, respite care, and other bereavement services for patients and caregivers in our community.

We thank our generous donors for supporting and sustaining the work of hospice in our community.  Your gift makes a difference.
