Earlier this year I made the difficult decision to retire as Rose Brooks Center’s CEO, after 25 years of being part of its mission and work – and it has really allowed me to reflect on Rose Brooks’ impact throughout the community.
The first thing that comes to mind is the unwavering support of you, our friends and donors. We simply could not do this work without you! You continue to allow Rose Brooks Center the ability to meet the needs of victims and survivors of domestic violence, even during one of the most difficult years in recent history.
I’m also reminded of the barriers survivors face when attempting to leave their abusive and violent relationships. I will always be astounded by the strength of survivors and the resiliency
that safety affords them in their darkest moments, as they begin to rewrite their stories.
Rose Brooks Center has helped create new stories for over 40 years, helping over 315,000 individuals, children and their pets escape domestic violence, providing them safety, security, and most of all, hope for a new life – a life without fear of violence. Because of that, I am left with the joy of knowing Rose Brooks will be here for as long as is needed to see a world without violence… all because of friends like you.
With sincere gratitude,
Susan Miller, CEO
