Heading for Home…Help Us Open the Doors in 2017

capitalcampaigngoals We are grateful to announce that our letter of intent to purchase an existing hospice on Twin Lakes was accepted on October 18, 2016. Our purchase agreement was fully executed on December 18th with a hoped for closing date of late February, 2017.

Thank you for your support to get to this important milestone for families!

Please help us reach our goal to purchase, renovate and operate this long-awaited children’s hospice and respite home. We hope to open in the fall of 2017, but need your help to make that possible! Click here to donate:

About Crescent Cove

The mission of Crescent Cove, formerly Children’s Lighthouse of Minnesota, is to offer care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and their families. We intend to fulfill this dream by creating one of only a handful of children’s residential hospice and respite care homes in the United States.
