On behalf of everyone at Rose Brooks Center, we hope you are enjoying the many activities that summer can bring. For the families we serve, this time of year is full of outdoor fun and back-to-school events, alongside the work we do every day to keep survivors and our communities safe.
Summer also brings the beginning of our new fiscal year, starting July 1st. Before each new fiscal year, we plan for the sustainability of our vital programs, and the means through which we will achieve success. Through various support channels, such as grants, individual donations, events, investments, and much more, we are able to meet the unique and challenging needs of thousands of families, individuals and pets each year.
As you read the program updates in this issue, we hope you see the impact that you are helping to make on those seeking a life free from abuse. You are part of the equation of our planning and support. With your help, we look forward to another year of achieving our mission of breaking the cycle of domestic violence.
With sincere gratitude,
Lisa Fleming, CEO
