MORRIS COUNTY — Rose House announces the commencement of its annual 50/50 raffle fundraiser. This year, the money raised will support the nonprofit organization’s Forever Home campaign, which includes a 12-unit apartment facility for adults with special needs in Morris County.
“With more than 8,000 adults with disabilities needing services in New Jersey alone, there is an urgency for special-need housing options,” said Rose House CEO Tom Mitchell. “As people with developmental disabilities age out of school systems, and with their parents growing older, we are dedicated to addressing this pressing issue by providing the care these individuals desperately need. We can only do this through the support of our community, which includes fundraising events such as the annual raffle.”
The new apartment complex will include:
- 12 single occupancy apartments specifically designed for adults with developmental disabilities
- Handicap accessible van dedicated to providing safe transportation for apartment residents
- Trained caregivers available to residents each day, as needed
- Integration into the local community through employment options and social events
