Thank you for your interest in donating to EMILY’S HOUSE children’s hospice. Your gift will help provide compassionate hospice supports for a child in our residential care and his/her family.  Your donation will immediately impact children in our care.

Your gift will help:

  • Provide 24/7 doctor supervised clinical care, and pain / symptom management, in a home-like environment, while increasing quality-of-life through play / art / music therapy, recreation and fun excursions fit for a child’s unique needs;
  • Train, match, and provide volunteers to support play, respite and care with a child with a life-threatening illness at Emily’s House; or,
  • Provide counselling or bereavement or group support for children, siblings, parents and caregivers.

To be reminded of the kind of impact your support makes – for children with a life-threatening illness and their families, please visit Emily’s House Stories at:

With your help, we can make the most of the moments available.

Please give the gift of hospice today.
