Preserving Dignity Campaign

Preserving Dignity: July 29th, 2020

Give today and your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Here at Southern California Hospice Foundation, we have a successful 18-year track record of serving terminally ill adults and children across Southern California. Healing happens here. We have reunited families and partnered with celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Harrison Ford, and Gordon Ramsay to fulfill patient’s final wishes. We also provide groceries and pay electric bills for patients and their families whose medical bills have strained their resources. We find solutions to unique problems that medical hospice agencies are not designed to provide.

We receive many requests for placement in a residence focused entirely on hospice. However, currently, no such place exists in Orange County, and there are only three nonprofit community homes for dying people statewide.

The “Heavenly Home Project” offers a solution to this problem by creating a residential nonprofit end-of-life care facility that is based on a successful national model.  In our 6 bedroom Mission Viejo home, 24-hour caregiving will be provided in coordination with medical hospice, enhanced services such as music therapy will be offered, and families will be welcomed to stay and be a part of their loved one’s final journey.

Give now and help OC families enjoy the freedom to focus on the things that matter most during their loved ones’ final days. All donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar, and will be used to guarantee continuity of care, ensuring that no patient ever dies alone.

With plans to open our doors in 2021, we invite you to help us create a loving home of the last stage.
