Mission Hospice seeks $1.7 million for renovations, care

Mission Hospice & Home Care is seeking $1.7 million to complete its $6 million capital campaign to fund renovations and patient care at San Mateo County’s only hospice house.

Mission House is a 10-bedroom house designed for people in the last weeks of life. It also offers a safety net for terminally ill patients whose caregivers need a few days of respite.

Since its opening in 2015, Mission House has provided care for 100 patients who would otherwise have been hospitalized.

Founded in 1979, Mission Hospice & Home Care is a nonprofit serving San Mateo County with end-of-life care.

Go missionhospice.org or call (650) 554-1000 for more information.
