Welcome to ABODE

ABODE provides a welcoming, peaceful home and unconditional loving care to our guests through the compassionate service of our community and volunteers.

Our Vision

Dying is a sacred time of life. Love, compassion, and a home matter to all who are dying; those whom we honor and from whom we learn. We serve the community as an educational resource in the art of contemplative living and dying.

We are grateful to have more good news, and know that you'll be happy to hear it.

We are pleased to announce a $25,000 grant from the Greehey Family Foundation to be used for operating expenses for daily care for up to 70 guests a year who have entered the last few months of life. Our guests will be given care at ABODE by staff and trained volunteers, while the hospice agency visits and provides professional medical care. There will be no cost to our guests.

The Greehey Family Foundation provides funding to improve health and human welfare conditions, to brighten the lives of sick and disadvantaged children, to educate, and to help transform the lives of the homeless.

This grant will help meet operating expenses for 2014. How wonderful to have received it, along with so many other donations from the community, as we prepare to receive ABODE's first guests.

While this grant is helping to cover operational expenses in 2014, we will need $240,000 in operating funds in 2015, so please take a moment and visit  to donate today.
