Where caregivers find hope.
Where caregivers find hope.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve the lives of caregivers of Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Your generous tax deductible donation will help fund our mission.
Florida Compassion Foundation is a not-for-profit Florida corporation founded by Tracy and Kimberly (Kim) Hussey following the death of Kimberly’s Mom. Kim’s Mom passed away from early onset Alzheimer’s disease at the young age of 68.
Kim and Tracy have not only witnessed first hand how this atrocious disease affected the person with the disease, but also the patient's spouse, family and loved ones.
In many ways it is more devastating to the loved ones than to the patient themselves.
Florida Compassion Foundation raises funds to help the families of Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. We assist with items that insurance will not cover. Anything from private nursing care to travel expense funds. We want to serve caregivers, of those who are afflicted, with the compassion Jesus Christ has for each of us.
Florida Compassion Foundation is here to serve you.
God knows how much I love you and long for you with the tender compassion of Jesus Christ.” –
Philippians 1:8 (NLT)
Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping others. They are led by our CEO,

She went on to study at the University of Hawaii and then graduated from Chaminade University of Honolulu with her MBA. Kimberly graduated with honors, among the top of her class.. She is married to Tracy Hussey and she has a daughter, a son, a step son and a 3 year grandson. After moving to North Port, Florida, she spent 7 years as the Director of Children's Ministry at Edgewater United Methodist Church and she now is a 3rd grade teacher at Toledo Blade Elementary for the
