A Message From the CEO-The Voices of Survivors



Today, we stay committed to our work of breaking the cycle of domestic violence so that individuals and families can live free of abuse.

I am proud of the work we do, and look forward to our work together, not only as an organization, but with our partners and community members.

Rose Brooks Center will continue to advocate for voices of domestic violence survivors to be heard, at a local, state and federal level. As a Board Member of the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (MCADSV), I know that we can effectively work with seasoned and newly elected officials on creating policies and practices that protect and support domestic violence survivors.

Rose Brooks Center envisions a world free of violence and we remain focused on our initiatives, centered around three pillars – Keeping Families Safe, Creating a Safer Community, and Ending the Cycle of Violence.
