COELC Statement of Inclusivity
The Colorado-End-of-Life Collaborative is privileged and honored to work with, serve, and embrace all individuals and all families, by birth or choice, of any race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
Facing your own death or the death of a loved one can seem overwhelming, but you need not journey alone. Colorado End-of-Life Doulas are trained to comfort and support the dying and their families.
We believe the last stage of life can be one of the richest and most meaningful—a mindset we share with our clients. We empower them to move toward and through the process of dying with a sense of purpose, and less fear.
Our goal is to help the dying realize their unique vision of this vital transition and to communicate it to those who will support them through the dying journey.
