With a New Day



With a new day comes new strength is a personal mantra for many at Rose Brooks Center, and one that encourages us to reflect on our commitments to you, those we serve, and our community.

We Know For Sure.

We know for sure that our commitment is strong and that every survivor’s voice matter.

We know for sure that we are committed to equity and inclusion through intentionally practicing and integrating it into every aspect of our work to ensure a safe, respectful and welcoming environment.

We know for sure that our work will continue to change the practices in Kansas City’s judicial system to keep victims safe, their voices heard, while holding offenders accountable.

We know for sure that we will continue to work with our judicial partners to increase the survivors’ access to economic justice and financial security.

We know for sure that as an agency we are resilient, creative, compassionate for those we serve, and are determined to remove barriers to the safety and long-term care survivors deserve.

Our commitment and focus on our mission will continue to guide us as we work side-by-side to overcome challenges, and welcome each new day with new strength.
