We are a home for terminally ill people with nowhere else to go.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Morning Light offers a free home to terminally ill patients of low income in Indianapolis.

Our residents have nowhere else to turn for end-of-life accommodations—but they have us, and they have you!

We’re a hand to hold for people with nowhere to turn.

Morning Light is a charitable nonprofit organization in Indianapolis that serves people who have truly nowhere else to go. Our residents often have no family, no home, and no support system to speak of—but they have us.

Many of our residents have had difficult lives, but their end of life doesn’t have to be!

At Morning Light, we believe that every person is worthy of love, respect, and dignity. No matter a person’s age, income, gender, background, or life story, we are here to provide a peaceful and supportive place of rest in their final days.

Please consider donating to help us support end-of-life care for terminally ill people who have no other place to call their own.

Your generosity matters

Morning Light is a bright light for so many people who cannot afford the end-of-life care that they—as people, as humans, as fellow souls—deserve.

Hospice shouldn’t be a place where we give up; it should be a place where we celebrate all the life that’s left to live.

Your donation is what allows Morning Light to keep the doors open. It pays for the home-cooked meals we serve our residents, it ensures round-the-clock CNA care, and it gives them a family and a home at the end of their lives.

What does your donation allow?
  • $50 Sponsor a resident’s last holiday
  • $100: Sponsor a room for one month
  • $250: One month of cleaning supplies
  • $500: One day of Certified resident care
  • Any amount helps! Every penny helps provide a caring, nonjudgemental home at the end of life.
Resident stories

Our residents still have life to live.

Meet Richard

“Too many of us leave this world with our stories untold.”

Richard came to live at the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home in March of 2018. His early life was full of difficulty, but he ultimately decided to change his life to begin serving others. We were honored to have him in our home.

Meet Oseola

Making dresses and preparing her native Nigerian meals, Oseola brought a smile to the face of everyone she met.

Oseola traveled to the United States from Nigeria to take a nanny position but was stood up for the job. Shortly thereafter, she learned she had stage 4 cancer and needed a home for hospice care.

Meet Dewey

“I hope I can do some more good for my fellow man.”

Dewey came to live at the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home and quickly made a friend who shared his passion for horses. Dewey was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and came to live the end of his days with us.

Meet Penny

“I’ve helped as many people as I can. I’ve had a hard life but I think it made me a better person.”

Penny had the kind of life that could break a spirit, but not hers. Before passing away of terminal cancer, Penny made peace with her life and maintained her strong, giving spirit until the end.
