Angel Babies Support Program

Thank you for supporting the Hinds Guild of Hope Noon Tea

The Hinds Guild Of Hope High Noon Tea was held Friday, March 24 – Fresno Fields by Wedgewood Weddings.

Thanks to the efforts of the Hinds Guild of Hope, many guests, volunteers and sponsors, the 2023 Noon Tea raised funds to help support pediatric programs at Hinds Hospice.

Because of their effort, Hinds Hospice can better support many critical but underfunded programs, like Circle of Friends Grief Support, which provides a safe space for children and teens to experience and process grief after loss. Like our Hinds Kids Pediatric Program, which provides terminally ill children comfort and quality of life as they navigate this journey. And our Angel Babies perinatal hospice program, which brings comfort to families receiving the news that their newborn or unborn child has been diagnosed with a life-limiting condition.

If you would like to help, there is still is still much more to do for our pediatric mission, and a waiting list for children to join our Hinds Kids Concurrent Care program. Please click here or call (559) 320-0308 to help or learn more.

If you would still like to support our unfunded and underfunded grief support programs, please click here, or call Hinds Hospice at (559) 320-0308. You may also email us at funddevelopment@hindshospice.org with any questions. Thank you!
