ANCORA Compassionate Care is very proud to say we have never had to turn away a patient due to a lack of insurance coverage or ability to pay.  We would be unable to make this claim, however, without strong community support in the form of gifts and donations to offset the cost of providing patient care and bereavement support to the Rockingham County community.

ANCORA Compassionate Care is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, therefore donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.
