Foundation

Through the generous support of our community, the Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation raises funds to support the mission of Treasure Coast Hospice and the patients and families we serve.

Charity Care – The Foundation ensures that Treasure Coast Hospice has the funds necessary to care for any patient regardless of their ability to pay.

Grief Support – Our comprehensive Grief Support program cares for anyone in the community who has experienced a loss. Through individual and group therapy sessions, Camp Good Grief, Family Retreats, and our Crisis Response Team, our grief counselors help anyone find hope and healing at no cost.

Inpatient Units (IPUs) and Grounds – the Foundation maintains and provides any funding for renovations in the 3 Inpatient Units provided by Treasure Coast Hospice. Our IPUs offer 24/7 care in a home-like, serene setting for patients and their loved ones. More than 1,500 hospice patients utilize our IPUs located in Martin and Saint Lucie counties each year.

Community Education and Awareness

Staff Training

Little Treasures Program – although much of the care for our pediatric hospice and palliative care patients is reimbursable, there still remains a deficit each year due to extra programs, services and therapies that our professional staff provides.

Treasured Pets Program – This 100% volunteer provided and facilitated program supports hospice patients and their pets, including phone calls, notes, home visits, vet and grooming appointments, dog walking, and food deliveries.

Complementary Therapies – the Foundation raises money each year so adults and children are able to receive therapies such as Music, Massage and Aromatherapy.

Harper Fund – The Harper Fund was established by the Harper Family in memory of Barbara Harper. The fund assists with special needs of hospice patients and their families that are not covered by Medicare or other insurance such as housing, utilities and meals. The fund has also been used to reunite families, send patients on a last fishing trip and even gave money for a patient to take a long-awaited honeymoon with his wife before passing.
