Our experience has shown us the benefits Angela Hospice can provide to patients and families through compassionate hospice care. Now you can help more families to receive this life-changing help, when you offer your support through the Art Van Charity Challenge – whether by joining our fundraising team and sharing your passion for Angela Hospice with your friends, or by simply making a donation toward Angela Hospice's programs.
It was one woman's vision that led to the founding of Angela Hospice 30 years ago. Sister Mary Giovanni spent 11 years researching pain relief and the hospice concept of care before founding Angela Hospice in 1985 under the operation of the Felician Sisters. What began then as a one-room office in a local university has now become a revered not-for-profit organization serving hundreds of hospice patients and their loved ones each year. We do this through home care and our on-site Care Center, which was the first freestanding inpatient hospice facility in Michigan. While the past 30 years have seen many changes our core values and goals have stayed the same: to make sure our patients and families receive the best care they can during the most challenging days of their lives.
We do this by staying dedicated to the mission of providing comprehensive, compassionate, and Christlike care to adults and children in the Southeast Michigan community. Driven by the Felician Sisters’ core values: respect for human dignity, compassion, transformation, solidarity with the poor, and justice and peace, our programs span the full breadth of human life, from our pioneering prenatal and pediatric programs, to our adult hospice programs.
Angela Hospice was honored to serve over 1,800 patients last year, helping families to care personally for their loved ones, and allowing them the opportunity to spend sacred time together, through the guidance and support of our expert health professionals.
Whether you donate $10 or $1,000 your help will enable us to continue providing the exceptional kind of care and services we have offered for the last 30 years. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
