Rose Haven 2023 Annual Report

It’s impossible to capture the entirety of our guests’ experiences and how Rose Haven services have impacted them, but to give you some insight into the work, here’s our 2023 Annual Report!

Introduction – record level of need and support

Rose Haven is clearly a community supported by community, and never was this more exemplified than in 2023. The continued increase in demand for services enhanced by the sweeps, daytime camping ban, inclement weather and continued pandemic fallout brought 4,152 guests to our doors; 1,409 brand new to Rose Haven.

Each guest was met with Rose Haven hospitality; greeted by name and guided through getting their basic needs met. Together we built relationships, trust, and connection to resources inside and outside our walls. The journey to a healthier and more fulfilling life began.

Our work is never in a vacuum. In 2023, this work was made possible by our exceptionally dedicated and caring staff of 24, more than 1,000 volunteers, 59 interns, 100+ community partners, and thousands of in-kind and financial donors. The best in our community showed up to support their neighbors in need.

As you read this annual report, know how grateful we are to each of you for the role you played in helping a record number of people feel seen and become empowered.

Thank you for your continued support as we continue to Heal People and Heal Portland.
