Our family has been involved with A Rosie Place for many years. We are very grateful to have this wonderful resource in our community. Our 2 medically fragile daughters have been able to stay for respite weekends which has allowed my husband and I to have a break and even take a short trip to NYC, something we could not have done without help from A Rosie Place. And the girls enjoy tons of love and attention from the nurses and volunteers during their stay. They always come home with an amazing art project after their stay. We feel comfortable knowing the staff listens to our tips and special requests for their care. We can call anytime during the weekend and get updates, which is very reassuring. Aside from the weekend respite, A Rosie Place has been doing a great job of identifying resources in the community for families with medically fragile children. We have gotten to take our girls to some playgroups, learned about different organizations we can join, and get advice from experts and other parents. Today we get to take our girls to a Halloween party for kids with chronic medical issues at Notre Dame. We learned about this activity at A Rosie Place. We enjoy being able to involve our kids in activities, in spite of their limitations due to their medical issues, and A Rosie Place supports us in this mission!
My 2 daughters who are medically fragile and physically handicapped have been able to spend a night in this lovely home with trained nurses and caring staff. It is a safe environment and a place where they can go to have fun. They require constant care and it is difficult to spend more than a few hours away from them. The O'hana Heritage Foundation's "A Rosie Place" is one place that the girls can go and we can a little freedom to enjoy a night out or relax a bit. They have a very dedicated staff and have put in much time and effort to do something new for families with medically fragile kids.

A Rosie Place is a great resource for parents like me raising a child with severe medical issues. The things I like the best are the family events and playgroup. My son gets to play with kids just like him. He gets to see other kids with tracheotomy's, kids eating using a feeding tube, and kids rolling around in wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment just like him. I get to talk to other parents just as exhausted and stressed as me caring for their medical fragile child 24 hours a day. They truly understand what it's like to celebrate the small accomplishments their child makes that most people take for granted. I can talk to someone that really knows what it's like to worry that you're back won't give out, so we can continue to transfer our growing children. They understand a simple trip to the store involves packing all emergency equipment, suction machines, transferring the child from wheelchair to car seat, and not to mention lifting the wheelchair in and out of the vehicle because most of us can't afford wheelchair accessible vehicles. A Rosie place is a great organization to help medically fragile kids.
A Rosie Place is a great organization that helps families with severely handicapped children. At A Rosie Place we can make connections with other families dealing with the same medical issues and know we are not alone. They have resource information and support to aid us in this difficult journey we are in. Most of us are to busy caring for our handicapped child we just don't have the time or energy to seek out the information and support A Rosie Place has developed for us. The minute you walk in the door they accept and treat your child as the great gift you have been given. This is a gift in itself because most people look at our children's awkward movements, noises, feeding tubes, wheelchairs, they can not see past the physical issues to see the true normal happy child within. They are creating a great community to support the children that are blessed to be alive due to modern technologies and advances in the medical field. Thank you A Rosie Place for everything you do.

There are no that could explain how wonderful A Rosie Place is. It is the one place I know that if my grand daughter is at she is having fun and is Safe. Everyone there has been so very nice and professional . I never have to worry at all when she stays there. And the time away is a godsend for both her and me..
I have been face painting here for a few years. It is the most amazing place the kids are so loved and well cared for here. I have meet so many amazing families and care givers. They make I feel like your a part of a huge family. I would definitely recommend to take your children here. And if your looking for a great place to donate some money to they are very deserving of anything you could give.
A Rosie Place does everything with their whole heart! From the respite weekends to the HAVEN events and everything in between, every attempt is made to consider each detail from start to finish! Every staff member is present because they truly love "their" kids! God bless this amazing organization and all the families/staff/volunteers involved! :)
Working at A Rosie Place has been one of the best experiences in my nursing career. The staff are amazing, not only are they professional, they truly exemplify their passion and commitment to serve. The organization is supportive of the families they serve and their staff. I enjoy going to work and being able to care for our children. The organization offers staff a variety of pediatric experiences including caring for patients with rare disorders and high tech equipment yet allows them to participate in fun activities with the kids.
A Rosie Place is a community of inspiring kids, their supportive families, and wonderful caregivers. It is a home away from home for all who have the privilege to share in all it has to offer: friendship, education, compassion, care, and most importantly fun. The kids are at the center of everything at A Rosie Place, and it is evident upon seeing the dedication of those who make it all possible.
I just started working at A Rosie Place recently and don't know how I got so lucky. It's an outstanding place where the workers truly love the children as their own. The staff is wonderful and they love to teach and also learn themselves and with kids as amazing as these, we are ALWAYS learning. What an amazing organization for families and children and what a blessing the families are to the staff that work there.
Every hour spent volunteering at A Rosie Place is a unique and humbling experience. They provide amazing services for kids and are committed to creating a welcoming environment. Everybody at Rosie loves to be there.
