From the Desk of the Executive Director

 

As the summer winds down into fall, I hope everyone has had an opportunity to relax and enjoy their families. Always remember to take a breath and appreciate what you have in this crazy paced world.

It’s been a busy first 2/3rds of the year, with projects and fundraisers taking place regularly. We would like to thank everyone for their support of our annual bowlathon, gala and 5K walk run and hope you participate in our upcoming golf outing on September 17, 2018 and our Harlem Wizards event on November 11, 2018. Both will be entertaining events for all.

The generator project at Hanover should be complete shortly, leaving one home to go in our commitment to having whole house generators at all of our sites. We hope to have the last one complete by early next year and our goal of installing a sprinkler system in our Budd Lake home is in full swing and we hope to have that complete by early next year as well. None of these goals could be achieved without the help of you, our extended Rose House Family. Thank you.

Finally, I would like to thank our staff for the hard work they do each day. You did not go into the human services field for the recognition or financial status; it was a calling that each of you had to help those in need achieve their dreams. Know you are the heroes of our individuals and without you their lives would be missing the fulfillment you help provide daily. Thank you for everything you do!!!!
