About Our Hospice

How is Hospice Funded?

St. Joseph’s Hospice is blessed with the support of a caring community but we need your help.

St. Joseph’s Hospice is NOT fully funded, we rely on donations to provide more than 57% of our total budget.  The Ministry of Health funds ONLY a majority of nursing and personal support workers – the remaining costs are therefore covered through fundraising, and in real numbers, over $2 million in funding support is needed each year to provide valuable services to the clients, residents and family members in our community who need our end-of-life care and related services.
