In 2002, Guardian Angel Hospice introduced Guardian Angel Foundation as its non-profit counterpart to support patients and families beyond the scope of traditional hospice care. As a 501(c)3 organization, Guardian Angel Foundation strives to educate the public about end-of-life issues, grief and bereavement and to support all people facing a life-limiting or terminal illness.
The Foundation provides emergency grants and safety items for Guardian Angel Hospice patients and their families while creating working relationships with other community organizations to provide ongoing support to anyone in the community who is coping with a serious illness.
Camp Angel and The BRIDGe are two grief and bereavement programs supported by the Foundation. Camp Angel has been a central part of Guardian Angel Foundation's mission of education and support for over a decade. Camp Angel Day Camps and Teen Retreats provide a safe and structured environment of hope and healing for children and teens who have been affected by the death of someone close to them. The BRIDGe - By Remembering I Develop and Grow- encourages communication within the family unit. People grieve in unique and personal ways - it is common for members of the same family to think, feel and behave differently throughout their grief journeys.
Guardian Angel Foundation provides Camp Angel, The BRIDGe, and other grief and bereavement programs at no cost to participants through memorial & community donations, grants and fundraisers.
