Welcome Home 2021

Welcome Home @ Our Homes 2021 was a Rogerson series of smaller events which will replace our traditional Gala.  By creating smaller gatherings in open spaces at our various properties we brought interested supporters into our homes and to celebrate Rogerson and our communities on the otherside of the pandemic.  In 2021 Rogerson honored our staff and partners for their critical work caring for our seniors through the historic pandemic.

Through our affordable housing and supportive services, Rogerson helps low-income adults age with dignity and vitality. Support of Welcome Home directly impacts those who make Rogerson their home.
