OLMITO, Texas – Sunshine Haven Inc. announced a grant award of $45,000 from the Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation (VBLF).

Sunshine Haven is the only licensed special care facility in Cameron County that serves terminally ill patients without charging the patient or the patient’s family.

The nonprofit partners with local hospice agencies, and hospitals to welcome individuals from diverse ages and backgrounds. However, the organization serves proportionately more elderly individuals from low to extremely low economic backgrounds.

Sunshine Haven Inc. said they have plans to use the grant to continue to serve patients receiving compassionate end-of-life care at their facility.

They also have plans to use the funds to begin a public education program about end-of-life care and create awareness of Quality of Life decisions for the terminally ill, said the nonprofit.
