Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice is an independent, not-for-profit community-based organisation. Like Kawempe Home Care, Samaritan was a community pioneer when it was founded in 1980 by a dedicated group of volunteers. At that time, Samaritan was the first hospice to serve the southern half of the US state of New Jersey. Today, Samaritan’s growing Family of Services touches the lives of more than 5,000 people each year.
Samaritan provides KHC with valuable support in many ways:
- Education for many KHC children (and support for local beaders) through the Beads for Education program as well as individual sponsorships from their friends and families.
- Staff development and education using Internet-based, on-demand training developed by Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice and Garden State Infectious Disease Associates.
- Community education and fundraising for hospice/palliative medicine, supplies and other equipment, including a new vehicle for field visits.
- Hosting reciprocal visits of staff and volunteers for education, support and friendship.
