On March 13, more than 200 community members including elected officials, the St. Johns Chamber of Commerce, and representatives from local businesses helped Haven Hospice celebrate the opening of Haven’s newest St. Augustine administrative offices, community room and Attic Resale Store located at 2497 U.S. Highway 1 South in St. Augustine.

“The commitment of Haven Hospice to the St. Augustine community is demonstrated through the purchase of this facility and the dedication of our local staff to provide services to the patients and families of this area,” said Haven Hospice Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President Pam Saucier.

Serving patients and families in North Florida since 1979, Haven Hospice has been privileged and honored to be invited into so many lives over the years. 

These new environments will assist Haven in continuing to fulfill its mission of bringing care, comfort and compassion to patients and families in the St. Augustine community and St. Johns County.

“We also have additional space for our volunteers and community outreach personnel to hold meetings and better serve our community,” said Haven Hospice Administrator Cathy Johnston.

Haven Hospice will have a Grand Opening Celebration on March 22 for the newest Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store. The Grand Opening Celebration, which will be sponsored by the Coldwell Banker Realtors Vince Fattizzi and Jennifer Sauvage, will begin at 10 a.m. and wrap up at 4 p.m. Haven Hospice invites shoppers to explore the new property –5,749 square feet of polished concrete floors with a unique industrial-style ceiling – and discover new and gently used furniture, brand-name clothing, antiques, electronics, books, housewares, jewelry, toys and more.

The Haven Attic Resale Stores also serve as a way for the community to donate their time, talent and treasure to support Haven Hospice patients and families. Donations are currently being accepted at the store Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  After-hour donations can be dropped off at the Haven Hospice Trailer that is located on the property. Please call 904-417-1337 to arrange for Haven Hospice to pick up larger-item donations such as furniture.
