Hopewell House

Upon learning in 2019 of the plans to close Hopewell House, Friends of Hopewell House formed to reopen the house in a more collaborative and sustainable way.

Led by long-time hospice advocate Joan Strong Buell, Friends of Hopewell House brought together accomplished hospice pioneers; business professionals; former staff members, including doctors, nurses and chaplains; community leaders; development professionals; journalists; and family members of those who have died at the house.

The Friends’ message to the community: Every gift to the Friends of Hopewell House will support the singular vision of what Hopewell House has been and what it can be again — a beautiful home providing peace and dignity for the dying as well as solace for their families.

On March 17, 2022, thanks to strong donated financial support from the community, Friends of Hopewell House purchased the Hopewell House property from Legacy Health, which provided a $1 million discount off the market price for the purchase.

After acquiring the property, Friends of Hopewell renovated and updated the house so that it has twelve beautiful private bedrooms and comforting, peaceful common areas. The landscaping and grounds were repaired and updated, primarily by volunteers.

Preparing to open the new Hopewell House, caregiving staff were hired and trained.

Friends of Hopewell House obtained its license to operate the new Hopewell House from the Oregon Department of Human Services in late January 2023. The new Hopewell House welcomed its first residents and families soon after.
