Over a decade ago, Rose Brooks Center’s hospital-based Bridge Advocates launched a poster campaign to reach victims of domestic violence in the safety of hospitals throughout the city. Today, the campaign is updated with a very clear message: “We are here. We can help.” Now, in 14 hospitals and clinics around the city, patients, visitors, and staff will know:
“This is a Rose Brooks trained facility. Ask. Be safe.”
Comprised of eight unique posters, we want victims to know; Rose Brooks is here, you are not alone, and we can help you, because . . . we believe you. AND, to ensure each hospital is trained, we work with personnel within each system to educate staff on how to safety screen for domestic violence – and how to refer those individuals to Rose Brooks Center. Because of this relationship, Rose Brooks is able to serve over 1,000 survivors each year in the safety of the hospital setting.
