About Rose Brooks Center

Simply stated, Rose Brooks Center is about saving lives. Not just protecting the hundreds of women and children who need our emergency shelter to escape immediate danger, but the thousands of families who dream of a life safe from violence – a complete life built on respect, love and compassion.

We believe the destructive cycle of abuse can only be broken by offering a full continuum of care including prevention programming, crisis intervention, life skills development, and other supportive and therapeutic services. This comprehensive spectrum of programs and services is what sets Rose Brooks Center apart from other domestic violence agencies.
