It's a Wonderful Life at A Rosie Place

Each December, A Rosie Place opens it doors to the community of families with special needs (not just medically fragile) children up to 15 years of age!   Santa and Mrs. Claus are in the house for visiting, hearing wishes, and posing for family pictures.  Thank you to Peter Ringenberg, for photographing our kids and families!   The house is filled with activities of all kinds for all ages and abilities!  Hot Cocoa and cookies are served throughout this Open House event.  This year the American Medical Women's Association at Notre Dame will be working alongside A Rosie Place staff to create a very special day for our  families!  We are so grateful for their partnership and support!

Note:  If you are an A Rosie Place registered family, there is no restriction to your child's age.  We welcome all of our families including our "graduates," medically fragile adults who have aged out of our respite program, but are still a part of our family! 

We have a great time every year! Here are some of our favorite pictures taken during these events! Also check out the WNDU News article about the event!  Our 2017 event will be Saturday, December 2nd from 10am to 2pm.   For information call 574-235-8899.
