The Heavenly Home Project
For many terminally ill patients, dying at home is not an option. Whether due to difficult living situations, a lack of family and friends who can care for them in their final days, or the limitations of insurance coverage, many people find themselves in a housing crisis at the end-of-life. In fact, studies have shown that although roughly 80 percent of Americans would prefer to die at home, only about 20 percent do.
The Heavenly Home Project will change that for hundreds of people in Orange County. Our six-bedroom residential care home will allow people to complete their lives with peace and dignity, spending their final days making meaningful memories with loved ones.
An anonymous friend of SoCal Hospice Foundation is helping us to jumpstart our Heavenly Home Endowment with the Million Dollar Match campaign. This giving opportunity allows your contribution to continue into perpetuity, doubling its impact and ensuring sustainability for the Heavenly Home.
Now is a great time to give! We have until March 2021 to raise $1 million—and every dollar helps! All donations will be used to guarantee continuity of care, ensuring that no patient ever dies alone.
Be a part of a great story of caring for those at the end-of-life.

Donate to the Heavenly Home
The Heavenly Home will operate on a sliding scale, supplemented by generous philanthropic donations, allowing all people to have a loving home for the last stage.
Now, with the launch of the Million Dollar Match Campaign, donations will go twice as far – all new gifts for the Heavenly Home Endowment will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $1 million.
Please help us celebrate lives well-lived, ensuring that each residents’ end-of-life is unique, peaceful, and reflective of their personal wishes and interests.
We are grateful for the individuals, businesses, and organizations that have helped us fund the purchase of the Heavenly Home. SCHF is currently raising funds for the 2021 launch and endowment of the Heavenly Home.
