About

Our History

History of The HAP Foundation

The HAP Foundation, formerly the JourneyCare Foundation, continues the legacy of expert hospice and palliative care available to all.  The JourneyCare Foundation was founded in 1992 to support community-based palliative and end-of-life care and to never turn anyone away because of inability to pay. The HAP Foundation, with deep community roots, proudly expands upon that focus providing expert hospice and palliative care education and research. The commitment is to positively impact the experience and future of advanced illness and end of life. This means empowering individuals to make informed choices, and connection to resources that strengthen the continuity of care through the end of life.
