The vision of Heart House Hospice is to make a meaningful difference to someone's end-of-life experience.  We provide comfort, compassion, emotional and spiritual support to individuals who are facing a life-limiting illness and their loved ones.  Individuals and families receive dignity and peace of mind in the final months, weeks and days together in the comfort of their own homes.

When you make a donation to Heart House Hospice, you are partnering with us to help people make the most of every moment they have and that is precious!  We rely on generous donors like you to continue to offer our programs at no cost to the people of Mississauga and Brampton.  We simply can't thank you enough!

About Our Charity

The idea of a Hospice began in 1985 when Ms. Laurie Bennett, a palliative care professional at a local hospital, realized the need for a community service to help her clients be at home at the end of their lives. She organized it on her dining room table with one client volunteer training program and serving 18 clients in their own homes.

Today we serve 1,000 individuals annually and thousands of family and loved ones throughout Mississauga and Brampton.  Over 30 percent of the people served in 2016 were under the age of 65.  Heart House Hospice has supported over 10,000 people to date and the demand for our programs continues to grow.
