The Shepherd’s Cove Foundation, a separate 501(c) 3, exists to help people put their compassion for those coping with end-of-life issues into action. We connect people with the change they wish to see in our community. The Foundation gives comfort and joy, relieves suffering, and creates life-changing experiences for hurting families. We build relationships with community partners to support the mission and programs of Shepherd’s Cove.

Each February, we celebrate those who share the heart of hospice in our community with a beer and wine tasting, awards, and live music.

Hundreds of individuals across North Alabama come together for the Race to Remember 5K to help raise money for Shepherd’s Cove.

A fun evening with seated dinner, live and silent auctions, games, and other activities, all to support the life-affirming mission of Shepherd’s Cove.

Join us for a family-friendly holiday event celebrating fond memories and the lives of loved ones we have lost.

Date is Dec 12 from 10 AM – 12 PM.

RSVP by Dec 11
