The people of Cumberland County have long understood the value of caring for one another. Twenty-six years ago, a core group of dedicated volunteers developed a hospital-based palliative care program to provide compassionate care for clients approaching the end of their lives and support for their families. In 2002, the Cumberland County Hospice and Palliative Care Society (CCHPCS) was formally incorporated and continues to provide an invaluable service to the people of Cumberland County.

The CCHPCS is a volunteer organization that enjoys a strong and respected reputation, as well as support from its 600 members and the residents of the County. Over the years, our volunteers have been there when families needed them the most – to provide compassionate care while meeting end-of-life needs.
