The Art of Compassion 2020

 

Date: Thursday, October 8, 2020
Time:  House parties begin at 6 p.m. Program begins at 7 p.m. 
Location: Virtual At-Home Parties

Art of Compassion, EveryStep’s signature fundraising gala, brings the community together to celebrate and support programs that positively impact people at life’s most vulnerable times. With the theme Compassion Starts at Home, this years event reminds us that when you gather together – even from your homes – your support allows EveryStep to continue to provide compassionate care to our community.
 
Proceeds support our more than 30 programs, including:
  • Hospice: Hospice care is provided in our patients’ homes and at Kavanagh House in Des Moines and Greater Regional Hospice Home in Creston. No one is ever turned away from care for inability to pay, making donor support a critical factor in serving everyone who needs our help. Our Quality of Life program is also an important part of hospice care. With support from donors, we are able to grant “wishes” for our patients and their families. Wishes include everything from comfort items, to travel expenses to reunite families, to special experiences that patients want to cross off their “bucket lists.” 
  • Grief & Loss Services, Home of Amanda the Panda: Grief support is provided at no cost to individuals, children and families struggling with the loss of a loved one. Support groups, educational materials, overnight camps and social events are just a few of the ways we help people find ways to manage grief and live a healthy life. 
  • Programs For At-Risk Children and Families: EveryStep offers many programs to help families get a healthy  start and build a strong foundation for the future. Services include in-home visits, pre- and postnatal education, case management, developmental screenings, interpretation and more — all at no cost.
