Build an inpatient hospice facility to serve westernmost NC and northern GA

Written by admin on . Posted in Hospice House Foundation News

Dear Fellow Residents of Western North Carolina, Did you know there are 59 hospice facilities in North Carolina, but none in the westernmost counties of North Carolina, an area of 2,497 square miles with a population of more than 134,000. As a result, residents located on the Qualla Boundary or in Jackson, Macon, Swain, Graham, Clay and Cherokee Counties must travel great distances to reach an end-of-life care facility. Residents from Rabun, Fannin and Habersham Counties in northern Georgia face similar challenges. Our foundation needs your help, donations to Hospice House Foundation of WNC, will be used toward the construction of a new hospice house in Franklin, NC, (Macon County). ALL DONATIONS WILL ALSO COUNT TOWARD A MATCHING GRANT COMMITTED BY THE SECU FOUNDATION OF $1MILLION DOLLARS. Please help today by clicking the “donate online” button. Hospice House Foundation of WNC would both be thankful and grateful for your generous gift. Thank you for your time and consideration of this project, John Baldwin, Co Chair Capital Campaign Committee

    This is badly needed. Folks, get it together and support this. If every family in the 6 counties gave $10, we could get it done!
