As we begin to settle into another year, it is impossible not to reflect on 2021 with sincere gratitude. As you review Rose Brooks Center’s 2021 Impact Report, the numbers represent more than success — they represent individual lives impacted by your steadfast support and kindness.
Even more so, an impact report visually helps us understand the many layers of programming and support needed for those escaping domestic violence. A great example of this is found in the comprehensive support of the Housing, Economic Empowerment & Employment Advocacy programs. This specific layered support of establishing housing and economic stability is critical for ending the cycle of violence and ensuring the overall health of families. I like to think of it this
way . . . the long-term solution to creating a safe future is a home of your own and the income to survive.
It’s because of this I want to personally thank you all for your dedication to Rose Brooks Center’s mission. You allow our staff the ability to problem solve and help create safe futures for the incredibly resilient and strong survivors we serve.
With a grateful heart,
Lisa Fleming, CEO
P.S. I have to share that this past December we had 52 families with 111 children in homes of their own for the holidays. This is a gift that will live on in the homes and lives of survivors for generations to come.
