The Rosecrance Foundation Wish List: Help Us Help Others

At Rosecrance, we have many special programs for our clients. In particular, our Experiential Therapies programs help children, teens and adults learn to replace old behavior patterns with more positive ones and to express their thoughts and emotions through art, music, recreational activities, horticulture and more.

In addition, many of our adult clients, including mothers with children, have special needs for good clothing and items related to childcare. And we always have an ongoing need for small household items for our recovery homes and apartments.

As a not-for-profit organization, Rosecrance welcomes and encourages donation of items that help us fulfill these needs and implement our programs. Below is our Wish List of items that we can always make use of.
