Bereavement Support


Down East Hospice is often the only place where a Washington Co. family facing a terminal illness can find the support they need. Volunteers provide emotional support and practical help, no matter the time of day or location to an average of 30 clients a month.

This grant will help meet the growing need of both bereavement and outreach programs.
