Project Compassion

We are committed to reclaiming dying as a part of living because we believe this opens the door to healing for us all.

About Us

.Project Compassion is a community-based organization providing education, advocacy, and support for all people as they deal with serious illness, death, and grief as a natural part of life. Project Compassion is the end-of-life care coalition for Durham, Orange, and Chatham counties in North Carolina.


.We seek to embrace death as a natural and integral part of life.
· We advocate for integrative and creative approaches to healing.
· We recognize the value of community in support of the human spirit.


· Educate the community on issues and resources related to end of life and grief. · Educate, honor, and support all caregivers in the community. · Educate individuals to understand, anticipate, and communicate their end of life care choices.


A collaborative community approach to end life care and grief support is essential to effective program delivery and effective use of resources. Project Compassion collaborates intentionally on a local, regional, and national level.

Free Workshops for Adults Grieving the Death of a Loved One presented by Dennis T. Hill

You don’t need to consider yourself a writer to attend. (And your loss needn’t have been recent.) Join us for an opportunity to explore our deepest feelings in a safe environment. Through writing, we will gently reflect, remember, and reconsider. We will honor our loved ones, reimagine our lives now, and discover inner resources we had no idea were within us.
