The Compassionate Community Startup Toolkit equips you with essential information, resources, and templates to launch a Compassionate Community and rally people in your community to provide important physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and practical support to patients facing serious illness as well as their families and caregivers.
The Compassionate Workplace Campaign will provide employers, managers, and employees with practical tools, resources and activities to help increase awareness and reduce stigma related to serious illness, caregiving, and grief in the workplace.
Faith Community Toolkit
The Faith Community Toolkit will increase knowledge and understanding of medical and spiritual aspects of serious illness, caregiving, death, and grieving while building capacity within Catholic parishes to support compassionate care within and beyond the parish community for individuals approaching or at the end-of-life.
This toolkit is being developed with a structure that will allow for engagement with other faith groups to integrate relevant theological and ethical content and context. Learnings from the development and piloting of this toolkit will inform these future developments.
In Development – Coming Soon
“The Compassionate Community Startup Toolkit effectively launched our organization’s efforts to build a Compassionate Community by providing a helpful framework within which we could begin a conversation with community stakeholders. The Toolkit was user-friendly, informative, and well designed. In giving the presentation, I found the Toolkit to be appropriately adaptable and helpful in facilitating dialogue around local issues. I highly recommend the Toolkit as a starting point for anyone interested in bringing the Compassionate Community model to their community.”
