2023 CORE Grant Awardee!

We are honored to be first-time recipients of Community Foundation for Southern Arizona's 2023 CORE Grant!  This gift, made possible by CFSA in collaboration with the RYUNA and Blessing funds, will allow us to innovate our programming to best meet the needs of our diverse community. We are grateful for the vision, trust, and partnership of these philanthropic champions - together we are transforming the end-of-life experience for all in our Southern Arizona community. 


Roots & Roads is here to walk with you through the journey, no matter where you start.

We all deserve to have easily accessible, accurate, and unbiased information regarding serious illness and end-of-life care. In bringing you this information, we hope to ease some of the burden of what can be a difficult journey. 

Carrying Our Grief
2024 End-of-Life Virtual Conference Series


Through your partnership, Roots & Roads provides financial assistance during end-of-life care to individuals in need and their loved ones. Assistance includes personal items, rent and utility payments, final arrangements, and other support that provides comfort and dignity to patients.


Roots & Roads promotes quality end-of-life care by funding projects such as music therapy and non-pharmacological interventions for agitation. Studies reveal a profound impact on quality of life by supporting new approaches to care.


Roots & Roads educates the community through its end-of-life conference series. “This was one of the most personal, inspirational, and educational conferences I have attended. Thank you to all the guest speakers for agreeing to be a part of this wonderful experience and to share their stories.” Susan Villarreal
