Emergency shelter services for survivors of domestic violence are imperative for protection, providing adults and children with a highly secure temporary home, allowing them to heal. In other words, keeping families safe is fundamental in helping them create safe futures for generations to come.
Rose Brooks’ Emergency Shelter program is a core program among the agency’s many services. It is a lifeline to the most vulnerable survivors who must leave their own home in order to be safe. Once inside the safety of Rose Brooks Center, survivors, their children, and their pets are provided with a room, and receive three daily meals, clothing, bedding, and personal care items to help them get settled.
Nearly every day, all of the beds at Rose Brooks Center are occupied with individuals who need respite to recover from the trauma they have experienced. Shelter advocates offer a hand and a caring support system as survivors and their children walk their new paths to a future without violence.
We thank each and every volunteer, donor, and staff member who give of their time and resources to help keep families safe through such a vital community resource.
This sign greets every survivor, child, and staff member as they enter emergency shelter. The unspoken reminder of what safety can offer our bodies and souls.
