Four Women to Call Roseland Home in Early 2016

January 15th, 2016

In early 2016, The Arc of Essex County will welcome four ladies home to the 16th group home and 26th residential program operated by the agency.  Acquired in June of 2015, The Roseland group home is currently undergoing renovations including various barrier-free/accessibility improvements, adding front/rear wheelchair ramping, converting an existing bathroom to a handicapped accessible space, upgrading the lighting, and installing a full fire suppression system.

The Arc anticipates that the residents, three of whom currently reside in The Arc’s Crisis Group Home in Newark, will move into the Roseland home in February or March of 2016.  If you are interested in welcoming the ladies home, stay tuned for housewarming registry information.

The acquisition and renovations would not be possible without the generous contributions received from the Essex County Division of Housing and Community Development, the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities, and the Roseland Affordable Housing Board.
