Access TLC Foundation was established as 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, when it became apparent that many of the terminally ill Patients in our community needed help. TLC Home Hospice found that despite public and privately funded insurance coverage for Hospice, many people are still uninsured, under insured or in such financial need that they cannot afford items critical to quality of life at the end of life. TLC Home Hospice is the largest financial supporter of the Access TLC Foundation, providing almost all administrative costs including staffing, office space, equipment and supplies. The Foundation also coordinates with The Moorpark Health Care Center, our very own Skilled Nursing Facility. The Foundation frequently places a charity Patient at the facility when 24 hour nursing care becomes necessary and the family is unable to pay for some or all of the costs.
The mission of Access TLC Foundation is to provide financial support for activities designed to improve the quality of life for needy Hospice Patients. The Foundation only supports those Patients and their families who can demonstrate financial need.
Access TLC Foundation is governed by a board made up of community members who are chosen for their commitment to the community and Hospice issues. All have experience with Hospice Caregiving, Senior Issues, Medical Hospice Care, Hospice Volunteering and general business practices. They guide the Foundation’s priorities, application and review processes, ethical standards and fundraising efforts.
Much of the assistance the Foundation provides would not be possible without the support of corporations, other foundations and community minded individuals like you! Access TLC Foundation appreciates your generosity and thoughtfulness to supporting our cause.
