Roots and Wings Foundation Helps Pay for Unpaid Medicaid Expenses
Soon after Rosewood opened its doors, the need was evident for funding to help pay for non-allowable Medicaid expenses. The Rosewood Roots and Wings Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, established to accept charitable contributions on behalf of Rosewood Services.

The Rosewood Roots & Wings Foundation was founded in 1998 to help advance the physical and mental needs of disabled individuals in central Kansas. It funds educational, instructional, therapeutic and recreational opportunities by providing wheelchairs, technical and assistive equipment, dental and medical care and legal assistance. It also strives to enrich the life experiences of disabled individuals by funding trips to museums, concerts and other activities. Foundation board members include Sandy Smith, Mark Bitter, Joel Jackson, Phyllis Vogt, Melonie Myers, Amanda Hammond-Fellers, Anna Hammond-Bodine, and Michael Dawes. Tammy Hammond, Jennifer Stoddard, and Patty Halseth serve as ex-officio members.

Roots and Wings signifies the security and stability rooted in the services Rosewood offers, along with the courage and ability for clients to try their wings and reach for as much personal independence as possible. Please contact our Foundation to learn how you can help Rosewood clients both roots and wings through a donation.
