Children's Programs

Last year, Rose Brooks housed hundreds of children in emergency shelter. Of those, 46% were five years old or under.
Every year, Rose Brooks Center’s Children’s Program provides comfort and safety for those who are the youngest victims of domestic violence.
Summer at Rose Brooks Center is often filled with fun and laughter, much to the efforts of staff, volunteers, and partners who want to help create memories for the families living at Rose Brooks.
One of the very first programs that Rose Brooks Center established since opening its shelter in 1979 was the Children’s Program. Created in 1980, the program sought to help address the incredible emotional needs of those also impacted by domestic violence - the children.
