Children’s Lighthouse of Minnesota has been working since 2009 to create the first residential children’s hospice home in the Twin Cities. The home will provide palliative care for children with conditions not responsive to curative care. With over 4,700 hospice homes for adults around the country, there are only three of their kind for children in the entire United States. Once built, children with life-threatening illnesses will be able to stay at Children’s Lighthouse in one of 8-10 bedrooms for respite stays and as a sacred place at the end-of-life. The home will also offer three to four family suites so that the family may remain close, be supported, and have an opportunity to develop meaningful and supportive relationships with other families with similar experiences. Visit http://www.childrenslighthousemn.org/ to learn more.
If you have any questions, please contact us at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org . June will be here before we know it!
