Help Us Make the Pause Brief

Plumbing Problems Shut us Down…Please Help Us Reopen SOON! 
The ABODE home is closed.  A pause. That's how we think about this time. Pipes in the foundation, floors and baseboards will be replaced. Our insurance company is pressing ahead, and while we expect insurance to cover most of the repairs, your donation will help to make the pause shorter. Your contribution will be used to repair the home, and when insurance money does eventually come in, all funds will be used towards operating expenses. For more details, visit our Newsletters.

How to Become an ABODE Guest

Guests, who are believed to have just a few months left to live, must have a hospice managing their professional care. They may be recommended by a hospice agency, family members, or caregivers. See the guest agreement for more details.
