$1.1 MILLION AWARDED BY HOSPICE FOUNDATION
TO LOCAL END-OF-LIFE CHARITIES
Hospice care for adults, palliative care for children and adults, programs for U.S. military veterans and multi-lingual populations, and specialized bereavement support for families are just a few of the services that are being funded by Hospice Foundation during 2013 in Monterey and San Benito counties.
Eleven local nonprofits have received a total of $1,116,645 in grant funding to provide an array of end-of-life care and support services for this Central Coast region of California.
“Hospice Foundation funding allows all of these end-of-life care providers to concentrate on doing what they do best–offer professional assistance, a helping hand, a listening ear, a compassionate heart,” said Alice Kinsler, president and CEO of Hospice Foundation, “and we are proud to partner with all of them in those efforts to strengthen the availability of services locally.”
