HOPE Program

Harrison Offering Peaceful Endings (HOPE) was launched in 2008 with funding from the Foundation. It provides one-on-one, structured bereavement care for women and their families. Nurses who volunteer to become HOPE companions attend bereavement courses and receive on-the-job training. These nurses then devote their entire time and attention to providing bereavement services to a grieving family, while another nurse is responsible for medical care. Donations support the ongoing needs of the program.
