Community Hospices of America Foundation, Inc.

How We Help
CHA Foundation assists hospice patients and their families during the difficulties of terminal illness by making grants for services and products not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. We:
Help patients live more comfortably, access quality
care, strengthen involvement with loved ones and
keep their dignity.

Help caregivers, health professionals and the public
better understand the role of hospice.

Recognize and thank volunteers for their many hours
of unselfish service.

Grant guidelines are in our Policies and Procedures Manual. Grants provided without regard to age, race, color, gender, national origin, disability, religion or sexual orientation.
