Fox Valley Hands of Hope
Fox Valley Hands of Hope Builds on Organizations 35-year History
Fox Valley Hands of Hope is the new name for the volunteer-driven, non-profit organization previously known as Fox Valley Volunteer Hospice. The name more closely aligns to the services the organization provides. It reflects a new strategic direction to expand services that provide hope for those experiencing grief while continuing to provide supportive care to those who are dealing with life-threatening illnesses.
Since 1981, our organization has served more than 22,000 clients and their families in the greater Fox Valley area of Illinois.
