    Angela’s House offers programs and supports and will coordinate services to families who need care for their medically frail children at home. For children who cannot be cared for at home, Angela’s House I, II and III are specially designed homes that provide a warm environment with 24-hour nursing care to accommodate the children’s complex medical and physical needs.

    Message from the Executive Director Bob Policastro

    bob-policastroIt took eight years but out new home is open. The children started to move in during August. This new house is the first of its kind offering a home setting for children that were living in hospitals or nursing homes. Angela’s House III care for 8 children and 5 of them are dependent on ventilator support to assist them with breathing. The house was setup similar to our other homes with a comfortable living room, den and dining area off of the kitchen. The bedrooms are in the back of the house with a central nursing area. Each room is colorfully decorated with murals and personal effects giving them a very warm environment for each child. Within the beauty of each room you barely see the oxygen systems on the wall. The home has 24 hour nursing to support the children and their families the opportunity to be in such a beautiful environment. My wife and I understand the heart wrenching feeling of having our medically frail daughter living far away. We are thrilled to reunite families with children that lived as far away as New Jersey and Westchester.
    We had our first summer party for the families this past July hosted by White Post Farms. Everyone had a great time as you can see from the photos.

    Krantz Motorsports (Darren and Arthur Krantz), sponsored us all summer at Riverhead Raceway. We were proud to have our name on their beautiful cars and trailer. They were able to get companies to sponsor them for each lap they did. This was the best fundraiser we have ever seen. I am overwhelmed at the level of support we have received all year. I had shared with everyone the great shortfalls we had in building this new home and the support at all different levels was amazing. Thank you for your help in assisting medically fragile children in our community.

    Come join us on Facebook, Twitter and our website to learn about the exciting events and activities we do all year.

    Angela’s House uses public programs, grants and donations to assist families caring for their children with special health care needs that are medically fragile, chronically ill or living with a life threatening illness. Your donations and assistance with fundraising allows us to ease the financial burdens our families experience with the day-to-day care of these children. These funds are very important especially for children who need help right away but often must wait months to get assistance through public programs. These funds are used to purchase medical supplies, medical care, therapeutic equipment, and other items not covered by insurance. Below are a few of the families and children we assist in our programs.
