MOORESVILLE – Serenity House, whose mission is “bridging the gap for hospice families,” is working to raise funding with a $50,000 Holiday Giving Initiative through 2018. The organization, which offers free end of life care to those who don’t have anyone at home to care for them, is counting on the funds to meet its annual budget.

Serenity House is not eligible for Medicare, Medicaid or insurance payments, so all operating funds are raised through grants or private donations. All donations go to offset the cost of food, personal items and general expenses associated with running a home.

The organization also needs volunteers.

Each Serenity House resident receives $225 in donated care daily, which is provided by community volunteers, Serenity House nurses and local hospice agencies.

Donations may be made through the Serenity House Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SerenityHouseNC, by phone or at www.carolinacomfortcoalition.org. All donations stay local and go toward providing care for Lake Norman residents.
