Progress at Trillium House has been amazing!
The eight-bed hospice house is slated for completion in June 2018 with a July 2018 projected opening date. Trillium House is designed as a home for people who are enrolled in hospice care in the central U.P. The project is located on Northland Drive in Marquette.
Thank you to the many donors who have helped us meet our 90% funding goal to start construction, and to those who continue to support us for the remaining capital campaign and on-going operations.
We are looking forward to this much needed residence for those in hospice care for whom other options are not available.
