Rose Haven is a day shelter and community center for women and children experiencing homelessness, abuse and other life disruptions. Our mission is to maintain a safe and respectful community, while providing our guests with support and services to assist them in regaining stability in their lives.
We break the cycle of homelessness by providing nutritious meals, clothing, first aid, mailing addresses, hygiene, restrooms, showers as well as educational programs and guidance through medical and social services. By meeting basic needs and building trust, we empower people to explore long-term change. Rose Haven’s low-barrier model makes us the first point of contact for many who are seeking social services, and we offer sanctuary where individuals and families in crisis can come to seek supplies and support to regain independence after the trauma of poverty and violence.
