About The Journey Home Hospice: Launched in 2018, Journey Home Hospice is a partnership involving the Saint Elizabeth Foundation, Inner City Health Associates and Hospice Toronto. It is a joint passion to improve equitable access to hospice palliative care for Toronto’s homeless community in a socially innovative way. Journey Home Hospice provides our clients with high quality health care services and a safe, welcoming and caring environment for their end-of-life journey. A place based in the community, for the community. They currently have four beds in one downtown Toronto pilot site location and are planning the expansion to a 10 bed hospice in the next two years. Once expanded, Journey Home Hospice is expecting to serve approximately 100 individuals annually, plus a much larger network of family, friends and caregivers.
