Rose Haven’s Advocacy Program is the core of what we do, providing immediate services, referrals and compassionate listening to those in need. During one-on-one visits, our advocates address the unique needs of each individual; advising guests on the complex system of social services, securing new identification papers, setting up voicemail accounts, mailing addresses and tending the needs of their children. In addition, advocates allocate modest financial support for housing, legal, and medical issues. Advocates also provide assistance with budgeting, resume writing, and employment to provide long-term solutions to their immediate needs.
