" A Gift of Caring" Capital Campaign
Expanding our space
Expanding our mission
For more than 30 years, Hospice of North Central Oklahoma, Inc. (Hospice of NCO) has been providing, at no
expense, quality end-of-life care to those with a terminal diagnosis while supporting those living with grief and loss.
Two decades ago, Hospice of NCO was bequeathed major funds earmarked for the purchase of a facility for expansion of services. In November 2011, when Hospice of NCO out grew the rented office space and the warehouses currently housing it's operations, the Board of Directors voted to use the proceeds from these carefully invested funds to purchase the Assembly of God church for $1,050,000, debt-free
In April of 2012, Hospice of NCO began to raise $2.7 million through the "Gift of Caring" Capital Campaign, to renovate the church building into a space designed for the work of hospice. Funds from the campaign will cover construction costs, as well as furnishings for the building and long-term maintenance to protect this investment for decades to come.
In addition to space for hospice operations, there will be a large multipurpose room, the Carolyn Renfro Event Center, that will seat 200+ and provide space for the Hospice of NCO's educational offerings as well as space for the community, individuals or businesses, to use for conferences, family reunions and other "Celebrations of Life".
As of November 2014, The Board of Directors, Campaign Cabinet, and staff are so thankful to be in our new home at 445 Fairview Avenue in Ponca City.
