Thank you for helping children live as fully as possible to the last moment of life, and ensure families are supported during this very difficult and challenging time.
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.
