Community Support

Roots & Roads Community Hospice Foundation supports individuals and their loved ones through the end-of-life process by funding the We Honor Veterans program and community Bereavement services.

Hospice staff offer a special ceremony in honor of veterans which includes the gathering of friends and family for a presentation of a formal certificate and keepsake blanket, often accompanied by the official song of the veteran’s branch of service.

Bereavement Support

Community bereavement books and journals are given free of charge to members of the public who are grieving the death of a loved one and are participating in support groups, meetings, and classes. Roots & Roads believes this program is vital because of the many services it provides to help families and friends cope with the death of a loved one.
