A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization
About Hospeace House
Hospeace House operates as an extension of the family, and in conjunction with nursing agencies to provide comfort care at the end of life. Hospeace House provides 24-hour support for those who are terminally ill and their families in a loving, comfortable home.
At Hospeace House the needs of the person come first and we ensure dignity throughout their remaining days. We work to alleviate pain and suffering for both the resident and their family. Many of us have experienced and understand the challenges of caring for a loved one. Hospeace House hopes to help lessen those challenges by supporting the family during their journey.
There is no cost to the families that we serve, nor do we receive any reimbursement from insurance companies. Hospeace House is funded solely by donations, fundraising, memorial contributions, and through the generosity of our community. There are so many ways that you can help to keep Hospeace House, Inc serving our community. We can only fulfill our mission with the gracious help of our community members.
100% of your donation stays at Hospeace House to ensure that our mission continues. We rely on donations. We do not receive insurance reimbursement, state, or government funding.
Donation of Time
Hospeace House has many opportunities for you to donate a gift of your time. No medical experience is needed for care giving. There are many volunteer roles aside from care giving. Hospeace House is not able to continue without our generous volunteers.
Donation of Goods
You can support our mission by donating an item from our wish list. Hospeace House is always in need of household essentials such as paper products, toiletries, etc. We thank you for your kind generosity.
We are honored to be part of your journey. Our team is made up of our Director of Operations, Volunteer Coordinator, our Skilled Overnight Staff, trained Resident Care Volunteers, and our support teams of volunteers. We work in collaboration with hospice agencies and your physician to provide 24 hour care and meet your needs.
Hospeace House Needs Your Help
Hospeace House understands that navigating the end-of-life journey is difficult. That is why we make it our mission to help families through this difficult journey together and well supported. We care for the entire family so that they can focus on what matters most to them.
Hospeace House has served Ontario and Yates counties since 2003 as a hospice house and then since 2018 as a comfort care home for individuals facing end of life and their families. We have been able to provide around the clock care as the result of community commitment of volunteer service and funding.
The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in a dramatic reduction in the number of volunteers who have returned to allow Hospeace House to staff shifts and again guarantee our ability to adequately serve our residents. Covid-19 also impacted the way Hospeace House has been able to raise the funds needed to provide our services at no cost to the families we serve.
Over the past several months the board of directors has struggled to secure a deep enough pool of volunteers and financial support to ensure that we can function at a high and secure level. (Hospeace House does not receive any reimbursement from insurance companies for the services we provide.) Without these fundamental resources we cannot continue to operate.
Hospeace House is funded solely by the many individuals, organizations and businesses who have shown generosity with time, talent, donations, and monetary gifts over the years. We are extremely grateful to all of you. However, having a stable volunteer team and sustainable funding sources must improve exponentially in the next few months for our continuation. Hospeace House exists solely as the result of our volunteer and pledged donations. If we are to remain a viable contributor to the community, we need:
We appreciate all the support you have provided over the years that has allowed us to serve the many communities in our area. But for Hospeace House to continue we need your commitment and input regarding our two critical needs: resident volunteers and sustainable funding.
