The Rose Home in Syracuse, a women’s residential recovery home, is at maximum capacity and in need of volunteers and other items.
The 12-step recovery program is unique in its approach to helping women overcome addictions by offering holistic options for recovery. Established on Christian values, the Rose Home currently houses 10 women who are going through the extensive program to learn anger managements, increase their self esteem and learn the power of prayer and meditation.
Currently, the staff at the home say there is an immediate need for prayers and volunteers to help at the home. There is also a need for the following personal needs: shampoo, conditioner, feminine hygiene products, toilet paper, other hair products, hand sanitizer and liquid soap.
General household needs are for bleach, bleach wipes, disinfectant spray, floor cleaner, furniture polish, rags, mops and brooms, a vacuum, light bulbs, paper towels, aluminum foil, laundry soap and zip-lock style bags of all sizes.
Other needs of Rose Home are for outdoor equipment and office products. Those items include: a lawn mower, rakes, shovels, gardening tools, gardening gloves, printer paper, pens and pencils, business envelopes, postage stamps, highlighters, 180-page spiral notebooks, dividers with write-on tabs, manilla folders, 3-inch binders and a 4-drawer locking file cabinet.
