Little House, The Roslyn G. Morris Activity Center

At Little House, we provide a breadth of services for adults of all ages with a focus on staying physically, intellectually, socially and culturally active. We encourage ongoing independence while staying connected with the larger community.

We provide a way of life based on the belief that no matter what their age:

  • People have not done all the things they would like to do
  • They have not met all the people they care to know
  • They have not contributed all they could to the health and well-being of their community
