Mission Statement

The mission of Wings of Hope (WOH) is to honor members of the community who have passed while in hospice care. WOH enhances the quality of life for patients and families through outreach programs and services and supports unfunded and under-funded patient care for those facing advanced illness and grief. Our supporters enable us to continue to provide community programs and compassionate care to all who need it, regardless of ability to pay

Description

Wings of Hope was formed to help close the gap on non-insurance-covered services and equipment for hospice patients and their caregivers. Many terminally ill patients have requirements and needs that insurance will not fully support and require additional services that become a financial burden during an already difficult time. Wings of Hope steps in to provide these services. Whether it be placement in a care home for someone who is uninsured, podiatry or dental visits, specialized medical equipment, or meals, Wings of Hope volunteers are there to assist where needed. We also provide bereavement support, companionship, and education on how to care for a loved one. Our volunteer programs are either clinical, working with patients and hospice nursing staff, or administrative, working in the office and assisting with business operations.
