Amara Foundation for Indigent Hospice Care, Inc.

We believe that all people, of all races, of all backgrounds should receive compassionate end-of-life care. This belief speaks to the core of the Amara Foundation for Indigent Hospice Care.

Mission:

The Foundation’s mission is to help provide appropriate facilities, or improve the conditions of existing facilities for the care of indigent patients who otherwise would not have access to comfortable and appropriate surroundings to receive end-of-life care. In addition, our mission is also to help educate the community on hospice and palliative care options.

How contributions to the Foundation may be used:

Contributions to the Foundation may be used to help provide a suitable location for patients to receive end-of-life and palliative care options by directly providing a suitable dwelling or items to improve the patient’s own home, e.g. a fan or window a/c unit. In addition, the contributions may be used to provide hospice educational programming within the surrounding community. Part of the mission of hospice and palliative care is also providing comfort to the families of patients. Through education, these families can become better informed about programs and options available to help care for and provide for end-of-life patients and their families through the final phase  of life.”
