A Message From the CEO – Winter 2020



Dear Friends,

It is around this time of year that we take a look back on the previous months and feel such gratefulness for our friends and supporters. This year is no different.

Like so many of you reading this today, we are also remembering some very unpredictable times. But it is because of those unpredictable times that we at Rose Brooks Center feel extra grateful to you.

Because of you, we were able to provide uninterrupted care and safety to victims and survivors of domestic violence. You reached out to us to ask how you could help. You offered your homes to foster pets from our pet shelter. You made masks and sent words of encouragement. You gave of your resources of every kind to help us continue to save lives.

You, along with the incredible Rose Brooks staff, have proven that together we can make great change and create better, safer tomorrows. This is a gift we, and the families we serve, will never forget.

With a grateful heart,

Susan K. Miller, CEO
