Preparing a Community



Did you know Rose Brooks Center has a training center that provides education for over 100 service organizations throughout Kansas City, and beyond?! We believe the destructive cycle of abuse can only be broken by offering a full continuum of care which includes educating the greater community and its service organizations.

It is by educating community service providers that we will better prepare them to respond to victims of domestic violence, connecting them to available resources, and ultimately saving thousands of lives.

Our education programs aim to shed light on the issues of domestic violence and raise awareness of the challenges a victim faces in reaching out for help. Through education and awareness we hope to be able to reach many more victims and their families.

It is our initiative to create a safer community, for everyone. Very soon, we will be announcing virtual classes and options, for a safe learning environment, for everyone:

Program update: Due to COVID-19, we temporarily halted in-person training, but are expecting to begin virtual learning in 2021. You can sign up to receive training updates here as we continue to make plans for the new year. :: Training Schedules Sign-up ::
