Project Keystone House
Since we opened Pennsylvania’s first hospice house in mid-1997, we have cared for thousands of patients at the end of life– thanks to support from our entire community. The many kind words and notes we’ve received from families tell us that this is something our community really needed – and that need continues to grow.
Our offices and hospice are located in Keystone House, a 160 year old Victorian structure listed in the National Registrar of Historic Places as “The John Welsh House.” The house underwent its most recent interior renovation in 1997 with the help of local volunteers and donors. After over 20 years, the house is in need of an update. Paint, bedspreads, simple window treatments, furniture and flooring are needed to bring this historic house back to its original beauty. This renovation is needed to bring this historic house up to the standards and comfort level expected by our patients and their families.
This fall, we launched a “GoFundMe” Campaign to raise funds to create the comfortable atmosphere we would all want for our loved ones. The goal is to cosmetically renovate the rooms on our second floor and then progress to the third floor if funds allow. In addition, we want to renovate our meditation room, where we conduct free bereavement sessions for the community. We are seeking donations that will go directly to meet these immediate needs.
