When a Community Joins Together



Rose Brooks Center helps adults, children and their pets escape and overcome life-threatening abuse by providing emergency shelter, advocacy, and community programming. For 43 years, Rose Brooks Center has provided safety and supportive services to hundreds of thousands of individuals, as we continue to offer programs that remove barriers for those seeking help throughout the community.

We thank you for supporting our mission of breaking the cycle of domestic violence so that individuals and families can live free of abuse. We believe that violence can only be eliminated when a community joins together and commits to change.

With your commitment, along with the strength of Rose Brooks’ long-term community partnerships, we continue to serve those throughout our community, as well as behind our emergency shelter gates.

We consider it a privilege to provide this care, in support of the outstanding need victims have to seek safety and heal from the devastating effects of domestic violence.

We stand for a world without violence, and thank you for standing with us as partners too.
