Thank You for Helping Me Make a New Start



Feedback from the individuals receiving services at Rose Brooks Center is incredibly important to the work we do and the quality of the services we provide. For emergency shelter residents, surveys are gathered every month regardless of an individual’s length of stay. Collecting feedback at every stage of a survivor’s stay not only captures perspective but allows them to process through their own stages of healing. Some of the most powerful quotes are the ones from survivors as they recognize their own strength and courage.

The Strength of Survivors

“I’m gaining my spirit and confidence back. Thank you to each and every one of you for helping me to recreate the beautiful life that my daughter and I deserve.”

“Thank you for helping me make a new start.”

“I am taking advantage of therapy and group as I am moving forward. I feel pride
instead of guilt and shame.”

“Very grateful for this experience to heal and grow. Thank you.”
