Avow was founded in 1983 as Collier County’s original nonprofit hospice. Avow provides comfort, care, understanding and dignity to those who are seriously ill and their caregivers, as well as those mourning a loved one’s passing.
In 2017, Avow partnered with the GSN WeCare Committee, to conduct an eight-week LGBT bereavement support program. The program provides participants with a safe, compassionate environment to share thoughts and feelings, receive support and embrace hope and healing.
This year, Avow received a $15,000 grant from the LGBTQ Fund through the Southwest Florida Community Foundation to expand their LGBTQ programs. In addition to offering support services, Avow is providing education and outreach to elder care facilities, care givers and others concerning issues facing the LGBT community in need of eldercare or senior housing
