When I think about what it takes to end the cycle of domestic violence, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for those in our community who are standing with us – to ensure thousands of families have a safe future, free from abuse. Just like the families we serve, they can’t do it alone, and we can’t do it alone either. . . so thank you.
With each newsletter, we hope to bring you updates about our programs and services, and the many ways Rose Brooks Center meets the needs of victims and survivors. We also hope you see yourselves in the solution and support given to each individual and child.
Within this issue, you will read about our court advocates as they help victims navigate the legal system and protect their rights. You will hear about students who were deeply impacted by the support they received from a Project SAFE® prevention specialist. You will read about the healing power of food, as Rose Brooks Center meets the basic need of nutrition by providing healthy meals to the families living in emergency shelter, and learn of the living legacy of one special volunteer.
In all of these stories, and more, you are part of the solution. Through your time, resources, and donations, you have made it possible, and are part of their story of healing and safety.
We thank you for standing with us as we all work to create safe futures.
Susan K. Miller, CEO
