Transitions LifeCare receives a $100,000 grant from The Leon Levine Foundation!
The Leon Levine Foundation (“TLLF”) awarded Transitions LifeCare a $100,000 grant to support their mission to provide hospice and palliative care services to children and adults in the greater Triangle area.
“We’re grateful to The Leon Levine Foundation for its continued support through this generous grant award,” said Transitions LifeCare’s CEO Dr. Laura Patel. “There is growing recognition that care at home should be prioritized and is worthy of investment. We touch thousands of people every year at various stages of dealing with serious illness; caregivers struggling to meet the needs of their family; people who are grieving and seeking support; and children who have a life limiting illness. These funds allow us to fulfill our mission of caring for everyone who needs us, regardless of their financial status or ability. We could not provide our urgently needed services without the trust and investment from our community. Thank you to The Leon Levine Foundation for your continued support and belief that the care we provide is essential to the well-being of our community.”
