The strength and resilience of the women and children we serve continuously inspires me.
Nora Blumenstein, MSW
My work at Rose Haven is guided by this quote from artist, activist, and academic Lilla Watson: “If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
To truly practice feminism, we must build up those in our community who are struggling the most.
My goal with BLOOM is to take a holistic approach to wellness, addressing the physical and emotional health of our guests, as well as bringing educational and employment opportunities, that promote healing, growth, and self-empowerment.
Rose Haven has given me the incredible opportunity to connect our volunteers with ways to serve some of the most vulnerable people in our community. I truly believe in our model of radical acceptance, and that everyone who is here, belongs here.

My work here at Rose Haven is very meaningful to myself and those we serve. I get to provide a safe, peaceful, and relaxing experience, for a community that too often lingers in chaos and anxiety.
In my work at Rose Haven, I strive to always make sure our guests feel seen and heard. I am grateful to be part of a community that uplifts and celebrates one another.
My work at Rose Haven offers a daily opportunity to meaningfully engage with our community and uplift those in need. Nourishing food, a hot cup of coffee and a friendly understanding face can make all the difference in someone’s day.

I focus on bringing equity and advocacy through communications. I can only do this work by being in community with our guests and I’m so lucky to do that with my neighbors at Rose Haven. Always here to learn!
