Resources & Services

This listing will be expanded as the Westchester End-of-Life Coalition gathers additional information from service providers. If you are an organization or agency offering end-of-life services in Westchester or adjacent areas and would like to be listed on the Westchester End-of-Life Coalition website, please e-mail your request for consideration to info@westchesterendoflife.org

The Westchester End-of-Life Coalition does its best to only list reputable services but does not take responsibility for any of the services delivered by those on this list.
