Burnaby Hospice Society is a not-for-profit organization that supports more than a thousand local families each year who are experiencing loss, impending loss, or grief.
We provide compassionate care to individuals and families during the end-of-life journey, including emotional, social and practical support to patients and families. We also offer planning resources and education about death and dying to the Burnaby community.
There are no fees for our services. For residents of Burnaby, no referrals are necessary.
Many of our palliative and bereavement programs and services are led by our highly trained volunteers. Each of our program volunteers have completed a minimum of 35 hours of training which is the standard across BC. Our amazing volunteers are supported and managed by our employees to provide quality services to those in need.
We rely on fundraising to support the ongoing operations of our programs, and the development and expansion of services based on community needs. We operate a thrift store in Burnaby which generates 65% of our annual operating revenue.
We are dedicated to compassionately guiding individuals and families through the end-of-life journey and welcome your support as we serve the community.
Burnaby Hospice Society’s team of dedicated, compassionate employees and volunteers provide a variety of important services and programs to our community.
They oversee the day-to-day operations of our organization, provide grief and loss support services as well as educational programs, and operate our thrift store.
We do not currently have any paid positions available, but we always welcome volunteers!
Burnaby Hospice Society thanks all of our supporters for their generous gifts.
