As fundraising to build Edmonton’s first free-standing residential community hospice continues, so do preparations to start construction.
In early May, 2019, Pilgrims Hospice Society moved out of the repurposed convent it has operated from for almost two decades, to an interim location for the construction period.
Programs and services will continue to be provided from the interim location at #104, 15023 123 Ave NW.
The Roozen Family Hospice Centre will be built on the old site in Edmonon’s established Crestwood neighbourhood (Candy Cane Lane).
The fundraising goal is to secure $10 million before shovels hit the ground in August, 2019.
Almost $8 million has been committed to date.
