Dear Friends of Hospeace House
Like many businesses in our community, we need to adjust to a changing environment. Recently we had changes at Hospeace House that will help us more effectively meet our primary purpose -- to provide comfort and care to individuals and their families in their final days.
We want to reinforce to the community, our supporters, staff and volunteers our dedication to our mission and our promise to be good stewards of our resources and resolution to remain a vibrant servant to our community.
During this period our plans are to continue to welcome individuals and their families seeking respite, peace and comfort during their unique time of change and transition. Hospeace House has helped countless families in the past and we are confident we will continue well into the future.
We want to thank our loyal supporters, staff, volunteers and the businesses and individuals vital to our prosperity.
As a partner to our mission, you are vitally important to us. We are very grateful for your support and will be updating you as we identify changes and improvements, including updates as we conduct our search for a new Executive Director.
