Here you will find Rose Brooks Center’s 2021 Impact Report from January 1 – December 31, 2021. Representing far more than service numbers, they are individual lives impacted by the steadfast support and kindness of our donors, volunteers and friends.
Emergency Shelter & Housing
41,172 nights of safety were provided to 575 adults and children through emergency shelter and housing. Safe housing allows the mind and body to heal.
2,952 nights of safety were provided to 76 family pets in our on-site pet shelter. Families may now choose to keep their pets with them in their private rooms!
7,865 individuals in crisis called Rose Brooks Center’s hotline to speak to one of our trained hotline advocates. For many this is where the journey to safety begins.
The Bridge Program
764 patients experiencing domestic violence met with hospital advocates through Rose Brooks’ Bridge Program™, serving 5 health systems across 14 different sites.
1,344 survivors were helped by court advocates, helping them navigate the legal system while providing advocacy and ongoing support.
2,897 calls to Rose Brooks Center from police on the scene of highly lethal domestic violence situations, as part of a Lethality Assessment Program with KCPD.
271 adults and children reclaimed their lives through individual and group therapy, helping them heal from the trauma of domestic violence.
1,067 students received education about healthy relationships and more through our school-based violence prevention program, Project SAFE®. (2020-2021 school year)
Economic and Employment Advocacy
552 collective economic and employment advocacy sessions were provided to adults, helping address the financial barriers that keep survivors in dangerous relationships.
On-Site Health Clinic
142 clients received 498 services both in-person and via telemedicine,
including health advocacy, medical and dental care through our on-site SAFE Care Health Clinic.
15,287 safety planning sessions between survivors and Rose Brooks Center staff were provided in 2021. A safety plan identifies options, evaluates those options, and creates a plan to reduce the risk of violence, both during the relationship or once the relationship is over.
