Review for A Rosie Place for Children, South Bend, IN, USA
I am one of the founders of this non-profit organization which started as a round table conversation between many representatives of our community in an attempt to meet a huge need.
The families of medically fragile in our community needed support to maintain the integrity of their households and respite from 24-hour care for their loved ones.
We educated friends and families around us and raised the funds to build a home that serves the needs of this vulnerable population and continue to support the mission with fund raised dollars, even as we recruit highly trained nurses to care for these special fragile children.
The growth has been remarkable and the impact on families has been huge while the need for funding continues to grow each year. The small, but wonderful staff who have volunteered countless hours and work harder than we could ever pay for remain the reason why A Rosie Place has become a gem in our community.
Medically fragile children and families deserve this support, but it is expensive, labor-intensive care and with more support and funding we will get better each year.
