Harris Rosen Foundation
Groups that benefit from the Harris Rosen Foundation are significant to Harris Rosen, president and owner of Rosen Hotels & Resorts®. Aside from his love for the hospitality business, 先生. Rosen has a passion for giving back. Through the years the foundation has focused on education, the community of Tangelo Park in Orlando, and the people of Haiti. Now that passion is growing and extending to newer communities and groups in need.
The community of Tangelo Park is located approximately one-quarter mile southeast of Orlando’s International Drive tourist area. From the late 1980s through the early 1990s, Tangelo Park characterized a typical urban community with low socioeconomic demographic problems: overt drug problems, poor school attendance, declining test scores, and high school dropout rates.
The Tangelo Park Program began as a result of a grass roots program that attracted local media attention and attention from local government, civic groups, and Harris Rosen. 在 1993, after a successful effort to reclaim their neighborhood from urban blight and drug dealers, Tangelo Park community leaders met with Mr. Rosen and the Orange County School Board superintendent to discuss the possibility of a scholarship program for Tangelo residents; together they established the Tangelo Park Pilot Program.
先生. Rosen provided the financial backing for the pilot project and collaborated with community leaders to establish an advisory board with the continued support of the Tangelo Park Elementary School, the Tangelo Park YMCA, Tangelo Baptist Church, and the Tangelo Park Civic Association. With financial support guaranteed by Mr. 羅森, the Tangelo Park Program oversees the fundraising, educational needs, and scholarship distributions for its citizens–ages 2 至 22. At no cost to its citizens, TPP offers:
- Pre-school opportunities for every Tangelo Park 2-3-4-Year-Old
- Parenting classes and vocational or technical opportunities for parents with children in school
- Full tuition, 房間, board, and living expenses for every Tangelo Park high school graduate who is accepted by a vocational school, community college, or public university in the state of Florida
Second Multimillion-Dollar Community Education Initiative Launched in Parramore
Parramore, a neighborhood west of Downtown Orlando, is the next neighborhood Mr. Harris Rosen has his focus on to expand his philanthropic and highly successful community education initiative program that he started in Tangelo Park. This initiative offers free preschool at a new public school set to open in Parramore on August 2017. Teachers’ salaries will be paid for by the Harris Rosen Foundation. Twenty-four preschool classrooms designed to accommodate up to 12 children each, for a total of 288 孩子, will welcome two-, three-, and four-year-old children.
Children who attend the new elementary and middle school and then graduate from Jones High School, will receive a free two or four-year college or vocational school education, also paid for by the Harris Rosen Foundation. Free tuition includes meals, books, and transportation.
The University of Central Florida (UCF), who is a partner in this initiative, announced that scholarships will be provided to four-year degree students of the College of Medicine who attended the new Parramore School, graduated from Jones High School, and successfully completed an undergraduate program at UCF.
The Rosen Foundation Scholarship Endowment has been created to fund the Tangelo Park and Parramore Scholarship Programs, UCF餐旅學校獎學金計劃, and Rosen Hotels & Resorts®’ Dependent Scholarship Program.
隨著奧蘭多迅速成為最受歡迎的旅遊在世界上的位置, 哈里斯·羅森認為它只會是擬合城市有最好的招待計劃在全國. 他捐贈 $10 million to establish the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida, which was built right next to Rosen Shingle Creek® hotel. 這件禮物是有史以來規模最大的抵押或收取的UCF基金會. 根據目前的佛羅里達州的法律, 這種規模的禮物有資格獲得美元兌美元的狀態匹配, 它轉換成 $20 million for a facility and faculty providing students with a world-class education equal to the Orlando hospitality industry itself.
Harris Rosen has once more offered a tremendous gift to further secure a high-quality educational institution. For the first time ever, an endowed deanship has been established by Mr. Rosen to secure top talent in this prestigious role amongst faculty. 先生. Rosen hopes the endowed deanship will help university administrators find and secure the best academic leader available who will offer leadership, vision, and guidance to continue to keep Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF on the cutting edge of industry trends.
Bethune-Cookman College Bronze Statue Project
Harris Rosen served as the honorary co-chair of the Bethune-Cookman College Statue Project with the late Dr. Dorthy Height, President Emeriti of the National Council of Negro Women. The purpose of this initiative was to have a statue sculpted of America’s beloved Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune including fountains and landscaping on the campus of Bethune-Cookman College, which Dr. Bethune founded in 1904. The fundraiser was a huge success. 一月 2005, the statue was unveiled on the Bethune-Cookman College campus.
面對艱難的金融時代, the YMCA Aquatic Center located on International Drive closed eliminating an important resource for area residents. 在 1992 先生. Rosen fought to keep the YMCA Aquatic Center open to the public. 扭轉這一局面將被證明是一個先生. 羅森面臨的最大挑戰, 一個他遇到了成功.
The Aquatic Center reopened its doors and now serves the best youth group of divers in America, 花樣游泳, master swimmers, 高中游泳, 和老年人尋求治療水處理.
The Harris Rosen Foundation has been dedicated to helping Haitian brothers and sisters living in Haiti attain a level of self-sufficiency for over a decade. It assists in the areas of education and health with donations to hospitals, orphanages, and schools in Haiti. Over the years our Haiti Task Force visited Haiti several times to deliver medical and school supplies, which were collected in the Central Florida area through supply drives and donations from local businesses. In addition to analyzing the needs of Haitians and devising a plan of action to help, they are also responsible for ensuring all supplies delivered to Haiti go directly to the people who most need help.
The one area where Haiti needed the most help is one we often take for granted: a clean water supply. In Haiti much of the water is so contaminated that just one glass may cause serious illness or even death. On September 10, 2005, The Harris Rosen Foundation and the Task Force hosted the Water for Haiti Gala. 在這個盛會上籌集的資金被用於購買接近 250 water filtration systems that were delivered to hospitals and schools in rural areas of Haiti.
Weeks after the historic and devastating earthquake of 2010, the foundation delivered 20,000 磅的物資到太子港和比徹姆地區. Our people were on the ground in Haiti, 與固定翼飛機沿, to facilitate delivery of these urgently needed medical supplies to wherever they were needed.
自 2010, 該基金會一直專注於重建和維持, including identifying ways to design and construct sturdier buildings. 該計劃是建設生態友好型, earthquake-and-hurricane-resistant houses called “Little Haiti Houses.” Mr. 羅森和他的團隊與海地政府合作的保障土地, 但當談判的諒解備忘錄的終止解散, 該項目被擱置. 急，繼續在海地工作, 哈里斯羅森基金會與國際非盈利性食品為合作的窮人蓋在海地新小學. 正在建設之中的位於喬恩L'的Abeille六課室的學校, 小城鎮在城市的卡耶. 它將通過六年級服務學生在幼兒園. 哈里斯羅森基金會和非營利之間的合作是基礎的國內承諾的延伸，為弱勢群體和貧困青年的受教育機會.
Coretta Scott King A.N.G.E.L. Award
Harris Rosen was one of the four people honored with the A.N.G.E.L. (Advancing Nonviolence through Generations of Exceptional Leadership) award on January 17, 2015. 先生. Rosen was acknowledged for his 20-plus years of commitment to Tangelo Park in which he launched a three-fold educational community service initiative that has had a direct impact on the increase of graduation rates amongst youngsters in the Tangelo community and helped lower the crime rate in the neighborhood.
When Rosen created the Tangelo Park Program, the community’s high school dropout rate was 43 percent higher than the national average. Not long after the program began, high school graduation rates soared to almost a zero dropout rate. To date, more than 280 young people have now attended college or vocational schools.
“I am so honored that the Tangelo Park Program has been recognized by The King Center and I am truly humbled to receive an award given in the spirit of Mrs. Coretta Scott King,“羅森說. “I will be happy to accept the honor on behalf of the Tangelo Park community and especially all of the youngsters who have worked so hard over the past 20 years to better themselves through the gift of education.”
Jack & Lee Rosen Southwest Orlando Campus and the Rosen JCC
