The Texarkana Chamber of Commerce hosted the Business After Hours event last night (7/17) for Hospice of Texarkana/Hospice of Hope which has served the area for 29 years. About 150 people came by to tour the permanent location that the Board of Directors purchased to serve end of life patients who live within 50 miles of Texarkana, Arkansas, in seven Arkansas counties. The Soul Tones entertained guests while they enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

The building is the former Autrey & Stewart Law Firm which was built in the 1960’s. The renovations were completed in the spring by M.L. James Construction Co. who worked with the existing Danish Modern style of the 3,000 sq. ft. building to minimize remodeling expenses. Fortunately, they have received $113,700 in grants and donations towards the purchase price and necessary renovations which totaled $185,000.

They continue to seek support to pay for this expense to the agency.

Hospice of Texarkana/Hospice of Hope has served as the community’s non-profit hospice since 1985 and cared for 355 people in 2013. The agency provided $212,000 in underfunded care last year. They continue to provide Palliative Care of Texarkana at a local hospital, the Good Grief Club to youth in the area, and will be able to increase their grief support at this permanent location.

The counseling staff is excited about having designated, quiet areas where they can provide support to grieving children and adults. There is a designated “Children’s Counseling Room” which is decorated with kids in mind. Also, their social workers can host families and provide support at a level that has been impossible in the past because of space constraints. They do not charge for their grief support.

Here’s some photos from the event.
