Roots & Roads (formerly the Casa de la Luz Foundation)
Roots & Roads Community Hospice Foundation was established as the Casa de la Luz Foundation in 2000 with the mission of acquiring and dispensing funds for supplemental support of hospice patients and their loved ones, educating the community about end-of-life care, supporting research concerning end-of-life care, and conducting appropriate fundraising events to help finance the organization’s mission. In 2021, the Foundation changed its name to more fully encompass its community work and reach of its programming.

- Final arrangement expenses
- Bereavement items, such as grief workbooks
- Advance care directives (Five Wishes)
- Educational workshops
- Research to increase quality of care at end-of-life
