Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, Home Health Care, Hospices, Human Services

Mission: Our vision is to ensure that no terminaly ill patient will face his or her "journey" alone or in pain, because of the patient's lack of resources to pay or the family's inability to provide care. Our mission is to create a unique, homelike environment where specialized care is provided to meet the holistic needs of the terminally ill patients and their families.

Results: We are currently trying to raise monies to eventually build a free-standing residential hospice and palliative care facility in our community.

Target demographics: Terminally Ill patients residing in Jefferson, Harrison, or Columbiana Counties in OHIO.

Programs: Charity hospice is a non-profit hospice and palliative care program serving patients in their own homes, nursing homes, personal care homes or assisted living facilities. We provide inpatient care as needed for respite or general inpatient services.

charity hospice follows the bereaved for 13 months after the patients death, via phone calls, mailings and personal visits. We also provide community outreach for funeral homes, sponsor luncheons and support groups for our families and the community in general.

I have worked with Cathy Cich many years, first as a medical director of a hospice and now as a founding board member of Charity Hospice. Charity Hospice was founded as the hospice with a heart and it has truly lived up to this idea. This is evident from the top, through Cathy's leadership, down through the ranks--nurses, aides, social workers, spiritual staff, office staff, and all ancillary personnel involved. Our medical director is exceptional. As a member of the board, I feel the board agrees wholeheartedly with the hospice with a heart goal. I am proud to be a member of this organization and consider it a real honor to serve on the board. Charity Hospice is truly the hospice with a heart! God Bless Charity Hospice!

Throughout the most difficult years in my life, Cathy Cich and her wonderful staff were right by my side to offer help while my dad went through Alzheimers. They were angels that stood right along side my family, until the very end. I do not think I could have withstood the experience if not for the care, compassion and counseling that they offered. It's not a job to Cathy, or her staff. They truly care and feel the pain of losing a loved one. My family will be eternally grateful for being with us throughout the difficult journey. God has given Cathy a very special gift...a heart made of gold! Thank you all for your help, and God Bless you all.
With love and appreciation, Tina Gump

Cathy Cich is the founder of this wonderful hospice, and she is the cream of crop in the nursing profession! As a nurse educator, our students have an educational rotation with this organization and are amazed at the care and compassion offered by these wonderful professionals. Great job, Charity Hospice!

I worked with the founder of Charity Hospice for several years. Cathy Cich is the heart and soul of what hospice is all about. I, also, worked with some of the aides and social workers who are now part of Charity Hospice. Charity Hospice goes way beyond the normal call of care for the terminally ill patients and their families, but to the staff, it's the meaning of the word hospice. To work for Charity Hospice is more than a job for this staff---it's their calling or some would say "their mission".
Each patient and family is treated with respect and dignity, and they know that help is only a phone call away if a need arises.

There is no doubt in my mind, not if, but when the time comes, I know I will be calling these angels of mercy to take care of my loved ones.

Charity Hospice is a wonderful organization! They are a group of compasionate, caring and giving angels. They were always just a phone call away with the support our family needed during this difficult time. Death is such an involved process but with the kindhearted staff of Charity Hospice, the experience was made as painless as possible for the patient and family members. They are truly a Hospice with a Heart. The patient is their number one concern. They work tirelessly to meet any requests, needs or wants of the patient and families. Love them, especially Cathy Cich, founder and Martha our nurse. Our experience will live in our hearts forever...God Bless Them!

Charity Hospice, it's administrator and staff are exceptional! Throughout my stepmother's illness and death, they were available to our family at all hours of the day or night. They cared for our family as if we were one of their own. They never hesitated to spend the extra time with us to answer our questions, dry our tears, or just be an ear to listen to our fears and concerns. My stepmother passed away last September, and when I run into any of their staff around town, the still greet me with a big smile and ask about my family and how we are doing. I have the highest respect for the staff of Charity Hospice and think that they really are angels on earth!
