THE IMPACT
Safety Helps Us Heal

Safety affords our bodies and minds the ability to heal.

At Rose Brooks Center we understand that ‘feeling’ safe and ‘being’ safe are two entirely different things – and we address both with victims and survivors of domestic violence who require shelter.

For those in emergency shelter, physical safety is the first layer, followed by wrapping them in the care needed to move forward, including addressing trauma for themselves and their children, providing education about their past relationships, and establishing connections in the community that support their physical and emotional safety.

“As you settle in [at Rose Brooks], you begin to breathe. You feel grateful that the stress and the fear is gone, especially for your kids. You realize you’ve learned so much since the day you arrived and being here has been much more than just a roof over your head – it’s been a place that has taught you how to stop the cycle of violence for yourself and your children. You’ve reclaimed your future, and have the quality of life you all deserve.”
