The Holmes Park House, located in east Medford in the center of Holmes Park, was built in 1939 for Harry Holmes, co-founder of Harry & David. SOFOH purchased the large house in 2016 and plans to convert it into a hospice residential care facility for those who cannot spent their last days in their own home.  The Holmes Park House will serve approximately 180 patient residents and their families each year.  For more information visit
