About Us

Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne
Our Homes

Our Homes are dedicated to providing palliative care to persons afflicted with incurable cancer who cannot afford to pay for care. Our homes are free.  No payment of any kind is accepted from patients or their families, nor from the government.


In accordance with our Rule of Life, we place our trust in the loving providence of God. That trust has never failed. Donations large and small, from groups and individuals, have provided and continues to provide the necessary funds to support the work.


Our Homes are open to all who meet the admission requirements; there is no discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, or handicap.
