Message From the CEO – Winter 2022



Dear Friends,

As I reflect on the previous year, I’m reminded of the moments of strength I’ve witnessed in survivors as they reclaim their lives and futures. These moments would not be possible without you, our friends, walking alongside us and those we serve.

It is an incredible honor to serve survivors within the safety of our shelter and throughout the community. You will read in this issue some of the many ways we accomplish our mission to break the cycle of domestic violence. And we recognize the significant role volunteers, donors, and friends have in providing a safety net of care for those who are seeking a life free from violence.

I want to personally thank each of you for your commitment to the mission of Rose Brooks Center. With your advocacy and support, you reaffirm our message of hope to each individual we serve – the message of “Rose Brooks is here.”

In turn, all of us at Rose Brooks Center wish you a hopeful and safe holiday season.


With sincere gratitude,

Lisa Fleming, CEO
