The value of a hospice volunteer cannot be overstated. Giving their time and compassion to patients and families living with end-of-life care needs, hospice volunteers assist professional staff and physicians in delivering exceptional comfort care to terminally ill patients and their families.

Facing the end of life can be hard. Facing it alone, in the absence of family, friends, financial resources and qualified caregivers, is even harder.

The Tribute of Life Foundation believes that everyone deserves to complete their journey in a warm, clean bed, surrounded by people who care deeply about meeting their medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. Through our 'No One is Alone' initiative, we are committed to funding two beds in the Comfort Care Center for people who could not afford it otherwise.
