Bedford Hospice House

The Bedford Community Health Foundation is proud of its long-standing involvement with the project to build a Hospice House in Bedford . Back in 1999, Ivylyn and Ralph Hardy set up the Hardy Family Hospice Fund within the Foundation, in response to the needs that Ivylyn saw during her years as a hospice volunteer. The purpose of this Fund was to endow such a project. This endowment Fund currently stands at over $98,000.
