A Message From the CEO – Winter 2018



Dear Friends,

The holiday season is a time when we all reflect upon the past year, remembering the challenges, the heartaches, the good times and the achievements.

We want to share with you Rose Brooks Center’s reflections and our milestones over the past 40 years. Our challenges, successes, and the impact we have had on the lives of the families we see every day. Each of these moments was supported by you. You have allowed Rose Brooks Center to create groundbreaking and meaningful programs that support the families, kids and pets we serve, so they can be free – truly free of violence.

As you reflect on the year, please know how thankful we are that you continue to stand with us. When you stand with Rose Brooks, you stand for every victim seeking a way out of violence, every survivor who is healing, and you stand for peace and freedom, for everyone.

Happy Holidays,

Susan K. Miller, CEO
