Morning Light’s RFI Explores Possible Partnerships
By many measures Morning Light is a modestly sized nonprofit operation. But we have big responsibilities! We oversee the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home, Indiana's sole hospice residence in which people stay free of charge. Recently, the use of the Home for that purpose has dropped a bit as more low income people have insurance options.
As you see by these photos, the pastoral setting of the Home is ideal for compassion and healing. That’s why in September we reached out to more than four dozen potential partners to explore if the Home could be used for related proposes through a Request For Information, or RFI. . Since the Home opened in 2014, we have served 400 Hoosiers who needed free living accommodations to receive hospice care. In recent years we welcomed some who were homeless and needed a place to stay after surgery. Now we are looking to our community to let us know how the Home can evolve its mission to meet future community needs.
We are asking hospital administrators if they would like to rent rooms for their patients of any type who do not have adequate support at home. Is there another nonprofit that needs housing to really make its program work? Can we retain our longstanding mission while using other portions of the Home for others who may not need hospice care but do seek compassionate surroundings?
We hope to answer that soon. If you have any ideas, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We at Morning Light look forward to hearing from our community and fellow Hoosiers.
