I have just begun volunteering with the Hospice Care Foundation. One of the most important reasons I chose to volunteer was the passion of helping our community I witnessed from the people who work with HCF.

Having gone through hospice with a family member, I later found this company online and was amazed at what they do to help our community. Financial help is so needed, and no one really wants to talk about this subject until they find themselves in it. If my family had known of the support this organization provides to those in hospice care either at home or in a facility, this would have been so welcome and would have helped alleviate some of the financial anxiety and stress. My family member would have greatly benefited from some of the programs this organization helps support like aroma therapy and music. Keep doing what you do!! Thank you!

Hospice Care Foundation is one of the best organizations in this community in terms of providing direct funding assistance right where it is needed at the moment of greatest need. I wholeheartedly recommend Hospice Care Foundation to others looking for a fine non-profit to invest their time, talent and treasure with.

My husband and I donate every year year by going to t he Hospice Ball. We have a wonderful time and know that our donation for tickets and date night table are going to a really great cause. I believe in Hospice care because, after being in health care for almost 20 years, I know how needed this kind of care is needed. These days, people want to be at home when their final days come and that is where the hospice care comes into play. Missoula Hospice is, in my mind is the best at what they provide for those in need of the end time cares.

My first interaction with the Hospice Care Foundation was in the Fall of 2010 through my place of work in Missoula. I am the Director of Catering at a local hotel and I had inquired about placing a BID on their 2011 Annual Ball and began to create relationships with the individuals involved. We were not chosen to cater the event, but did have other opportunities to work with the organization and the committee memebers.

During this same time, my Grandmother had began to use Hospice Care (not in Missoula), and we got to know the individuals that vounteered and took care of her. If it weren't for the people who support these organizations and their services, there would be so many of our loved ones without the care that they need in their last moments of life. The Hospice Care Foundation is an organization that provides support to local hospice care facilities within the community. By helping to reduce the high costs on the families and/or patients who may not have the necessary resources needed in obtaining this kind of care, they offer a service that is so valuable to the patient and their family.
