Children's Programs

About

One of the very first programs that Rose Brooks Center established since
opening its shelter in 1979 was the Children’s Program. Created in 1980, the
program helps to address the incredible emotional needs of those also
impacted by domestic violence – the children.

The Children’s Program is a significant part of Rose Brooks’ mission, as we work to break the cycle of domestic violence — offering a wide variety of services to support the emotional and physical well-being of children who are healing from domestic violence.

When A Child Is Needing Support To Build A Bright, Hopeful Future, Rose Brooks Is Here.

Offering a wide variety of services to support the emotional and physical well-being of children who are healing from domestic violence.

• Individual and group therapy using play, art, music, and pet-assisted therapy help children find healthy ways to express their feelings in a safe environment and cope with trauma.
• Case management services help parents with safety planning and connecting with community resources to meet their children’s basic needs, school enrollment, health care, nutrition, and clothing.
• Parents benefit from Parent Support services and the Kid Zone, a play and learning environment children attend while the parent is participating in support services.

With support provided by the Jackson County Children Services Fund.

The Impact

ending the cycle

The Children’s Program is for the entire family.

Parents play an important role in the healing of their children. Parent services include individual and group parent support sessions, family enrichment activities, and domestic violence education and its impact on their children.

All parent services help families raise healthy children and ultimately prevent the cycle of domestic violence. As a matter of fact, 95% of the parents living in shelter with their children can identify ways to support their child’s healing once engaged in services. This is breaking the cycle!
