Friends of The Rose House

FORH at Grand Opening of 290CKR

The Friends of The Rose House have been supporters of The Rose House from our beginning in 1999 - lending their time, talents, and financial support to our Annual Gala, 50/50 Raffle, Tricky Tray, and other events and programs, as well as helping provide initial funding to purchase the property for the construction of Hanover residence.


With the opening of the Independent Living Program, they organized to raise funds to support and enhance the Program and help raise awareness of The Rose House’s residential and vocational programs. 



The Friends use the proceeds of their fundraisers to support the Independent Living Program.

Other fundraisers have included a rummage sale, production of a Friends of The Rose House cookbook, and a charity auction.

How Can I Help?

The Rose House depends on the generous support of friends like you to help provide our clients with the best possible programs, individual supports, and help with pursuing their personal goals.

Proceeds from the Rose House’s Gala, Annual Dinner, and contributions from individual supporters and community groups help clients to take self-improvement classes, learn new hobbies and skills, receive employment training, and enjoy individual and group activities and trips.

Recent activites have included...

The Bronx Zoo

Camp Merry Heart

Camp Jaycee

Coney Island Aquarium

The Jersey Shore

Land of Make Believe

Paper Mill Playhouse

Our group home clients receive only a small stipend ($40 to $100 per month) for personal spending money.  These funds have to cover not only their recreation costs, but also personal items such as clothing, and medications and supplements not covered by Medicaid.

Also, State rules prohibit service providers from using client contract funds for attending sleep-away camp or going away on vacation.  So, your support helps us help our residents do things, like vacations, which most people take for granted.

For example, four of our residents took a week’s vacation to Orlando, Florida.  About half the cost was paid for by the residents saving their own money; the other half was donated by local Rotary organizations and other donations to The Rose House.
