Our Morristown Community Engagement team’s nonprofit partner, Deirdre’s House, is a center in Morris County, NJ for child victims of abuse and/or neglect and for children that have witnessed violence. This house serves as the only local site where a child victim can be interviewed and digitally recorded by law enforcement, medically examined and treated by a pediatric abuse specialist, prepared for trial, and clinically counseled under one roof. This allows them to be continually cared for in a space they know and feel safe.

The Morristown team has been supporting the nonprofit for about a year, organizing Backpack, Snack and Holiday Drives, as well as providing firsthand support at their annual Gala and through their “Days of Caring” initiatives. Most recently the team painted, planted and power washed – transforming the backyard at Deirdre’s House.

This effort is led by Leigh Ann Sheehan and Tina Angelone and supported by more than 40 Intact A&H team members. Tina recently commented on the team’s Days of Caring effort: “It was amazing to witness the teamwork as the yard blossomed into a comfortable haven for the children.”
