Hundreds of individuals facing the end of life are less alone as a result of a relationship with a Doula Volunteer.

How to Support the Doula Program

The Doula Program does not receive government funding and relies on your tax deductible donations. Our services are cost free to those who are facing the end of their lives alone.

There is a growing need for the special relationship that only Doula Volunteers can provide. Our individual funders, family foundations and grants support our continuing efforts to lessen the loneliness of illness faced by so many.
