Welcome to Katie’s House
Katie’s House is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization
that provides Supportive Housing, Activities and Services
to people with Developmental Disabilities.
Katie's House supports a Residential Home
who are compatible in age and abilities.
Katie’s House is approved by the State of NJ
as a provider for Services and Activities.
We are a Parent Driven Organization that believes People with Disabilities should have the same rights as everyone else, to live with others of the same age and abilities, to be out in the community and have activities that are educational and fun.
Our Personal Assistants are paid through funding from DDD and care for residents 24/7.
Today’s parents are not happy with the common practice of warehousing individuals with disabilities in workshops and group homes. We do not want our adult children to be grouped with others who are not age or ability appropriate.

Holiday Gifts for Pediatric Oncology Patients
People with disabilities can make a difference!
Please help us put a smile on young cancer patients.
We Are Sponsoring A Toy Drive for the Holiday Season
For children battling cancer at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ
Dear Friends of Katie’s House,
It is that time of year again. I am hoping that everyone will either buy some toys/gifts or if you do not live in the area you could make a donation and mail it to the address below. Make your check payable to Katie's House and put in the memo Pediatric Oncology.
I have been collecting for the oncology department since Katie finished her chemo in 1997.
Please help to make this a success. This could happen to a child you know.
As part of our effort to support children in need, we will be collecting gifts for the children
receiving treatment in the Pediatric Oncology Department at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Paterson,
NJ. We are coordinating our efforts with local groups in Newton and the surrounding area.
Katie’s House is a non profit Parent Driven Organization for young adults with disabilities. We
believe adults with disabilities can Make A Difference if given a chance.
The following is a list of needed items:
Play Doh is always needed for the Pediatric Oncology Unit. The small 2 ounce cans are
great. Once it is opened, it cannot be used again. (Preventing exposure to germs when
children are having chemo.)
Crafts for all ages: Crayons, coloring books, glue sticks etc
Toys and Games that you can play while confined to bed or while having a treatment.
Gift Cards for teens – Blockbusters, ITunes, etc. Everyone forgets teens.
Nail Polish, make-up, bath and body, jewelry etc.
Sports Magazines, Teen Magazines
Team Caps and T-Shirts
Gifts for infants to 18 years that you think they might enjoy.
Checks marked Oncology Gifts will be used to purchase gifts for the children.
Anything that you can do will be greatly appreciated by these children and their families. Even
when you have health insurance parents still have many out of pocket expenses. Thank you in
advance for your help.
Please, no stuffed animals that have been sitting on a shelf, collecting dust. A coloring book would be better.
