Mission: Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area was founded in 1980. The original focus was on non-medical support to families who were facing life-threatening illnesses. An increasing need for bereavement support grew from that. Our bereavement programs now comprise a major portion of our services. We are committed to education regarding issues related to death and grieving in our community, in all arenas.

When my husband and son both died in 1988 there were NO bereavement support services available in Central Maine. My family got
through it but had there been a place to go like the Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area Community Center the journey would have been
much less painful. That life experience coupled with my 20years nursing experience feeds my passion for the programs and services at
HVWA and led to my subsequent committment to make a difference for others who are dealing with a dying family member and the
aftermath of profound loss. I am proud of and believe strongly in the staff, board and volunteers at HVWA, as well as the many community
members, who pour their hearts, skills and vision into making sure that HVWA's programs and services continue to grow and prosper. I
encourage you to support HVWA - death touches us all in one way or another and when it touches you I promise you that the people and
services at Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area will be a resource you will find invaluable! Dale Marie Clark, (Retired) Executive Director
