The Angels of Kansas City Hospice have been raising funds since 2003. We’re raising money for all things Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care, including: the Kansas City Hospice House™, NorthCare Hospice House, Solace House, Camp Erin, Camp Carousel, Kansas City Palliative Home Care, Carousel Pediatric & Perinatal Programs, and much more.

Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care is KC’s original hospice, the leader in supportive care at any stage of illness. We have provided compassionate care to the greater Kansas City area since 1980. Because we have local leadership, our focus on caring for our community with expertise and a focus is on quality.

Nonprofit Organization

As a nonprofit organization, our focus is on caring for our community instead of maximizing our bottom line. Therefore, our commitment is to care for all ages at all stages of serious illness, making sure the whole family receives support all along the way. (Consumer Reports thinks this is the most important point in choosing a hospice!) Providing end of life care to everyone, regardless of age, diagnosis or ability to pay is why so many volunteers, donors and organizations choose to give us their support!

Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to bring expert care, peace of mind, comfort, guidance and hope to people who are affected by life-threatening and life-limiting illness.
