Mariposa House Hospice is coming to Orillia!
Plans are laid for a 5-bed residential hospice home in downtown Orillia to provide end of life care in our own community. These are the first 5 hospice beds in Orillia's history. Our community has been in need of a residential hospice for at least a decade.
Despite the government funding, we still need to raise 50% of our operational funding on an annual basis - which is close to $400,000 annually. We need your energy and support to volunteer and fundraise to meet this goal so we can successfully operate Mariposa House Hospice.
If you would like to volunteer please do not hesitate to email us.
