Home Hospice Association is affecting change, at the grassroots level. Getting others, especially others with influence, to pay attention to the needs of dying Canadians and those who love them happens through open conversation and strong relationships with all levels of government. When HHA meets with those who can get our voices heard, we do not go to that meeting with a hand out. We recognize how stretched all governments are financially. While raising funds is always in the forefront of our collective minds, these relationship building efforts are about giving governments a hand up, in their efforts, to care for their constituency.
