Foundation History

In 2009, a group of concerned Jefferson County residents formed with the initial mission to support the Jefferson Healthcare Hospice Program in a shared goal of enhancing the experience of the hospice patient and their family. Today, the Hospice Foundation for Jefferson Healthcare is a not-for-profit entity, separate from hospice program, and consists of all volunteer board of dedicated individuals from all walks of life. Our sole mission to support Jefferson Healthcare Hospice through funding programs and services, sponsorship of educational events, and promoting community understanding of end-of-life.
