Hospice Giving Hope

Hospice Giving Hope

All of the patients we serve are at the end-of-life, but that doesn’t mean their life is over. We aim to demonstrate that hospice is more about living than it is about dying. Here are some examples of how the SCHF works to fulfill both basic needs and extraordinary dreams.
