For patients & families

Mission Hospice is a local, independent nonprofit that provides patients and families with physical, emotional, and spiritual support throughout the journey from a life-threatening diagnosis through death and bereavement. Our interdisciplinary teams focus on quality of life and symptom management.

Since our founding in 1979 as San Mateo County’s first hospice program, we have served thousands of patients and their families with quality care and compassionate end-of-life support. Donations from the community support our exceptional care, and help us serve people regardless of their medical coverage or ability to pay.
