Safe Place To Call Home

Rose Brooks Center’s Economic and Housing Program helps survivors find housing and gain economic stability to build safe homes, free from violence.

This program is provided because survivors deserve a safe place to call home. Rose Brooks Center’s Housing Program accepts referrals primarily through a community-wide “Coordinated Entry” system, described in our new Economic and Housing brochure. Rose Brooks Center helps referred participants overcome barriers and find a home to rent. With staff support, participants decide their priorities throughout the 12-month program. Commonly, participants set, work toward, and accomplish goals. They build money management skills and find work. They also receive rental assistance and have access to services like therapy and legal advocacy. The program gives survivors the time and tools to heal from abuse and work toward a sense of independence.

Along with permanent housing, services include employment advocacy and economic empowerment. Combined, these services address one of the primary barriers survivors face when leaving an abusive relationship – a safe place to call home that is sustainable.

Because we know that 99% of survivors experience financial abuse, Economic Empowerment offers support in repairing the effects of economic abuse, including credit repair, budgeting, and education.

Domestic violence often jeopardizes a survivor’s ability to work and have a steady income to live independently. Employment Advocacy services support survivors through all stages of the employment process, from preparing for a job search to getting and keeping a job.
