MARLENE VON FRIEDERICHS-FITZWATER, CEO & FOUNDER, HEALTH COMMUNICATION RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Marlene von Friederichs-Fitzwater is the founder of Joshua’s House Volunteer Hospice, California’s first facility dedicated to caring for homeless, terminally ill people. The facility is slated to open later this year and will provide free end-of-life comfort care for up to twenty patients. Joshua’s House is named after Ms. Friederichs-Fitzwater’s grandson, a homeless person himself, who passed away on the streets in Omaha, NE. Ms. Friederichs-Fitzwater explains, “To have cancer or some other life-threatening disease and to be homeless we’ve got to create places for these people to be cared for, because you can’t have hospice care if you don’t have a home.” The facility’s staff will offer comfort care–including meals, clothing, therapy–at no cost to the care recipient. Local health system partners will provide quality hospice care. Please take a moment to learn about ways in which you can provide funding to help terminally ill homeless people in our community.
