More than a shelter…a second chance.

On Easter Sunday 1974, Rosie’s Place was founded as the first shelter for women in the country. We created a sanctuary of hope, a place where every woman was welcomed. Listened to. Understood. Loved.

Our vital work continues today. Rosie's Place is a multi-service community center that offers women emergency shelter and meals, and so much more: a food pantry, ESOL classes, legal assistance, wellness care, one-on-one support, housing and job search services, and community outreach. Here women will find support, opportunity and the tools they need to make a new start.

Because we accept no government funding, we rely on our many friends to make all we do possible. Thanks to their generosity, we can remain a safety net for women struggling to survive during these difficult days. Please join us in our life-changing work!

Rosie’s Place guests have always struggled to have the necessities they need to make it through the day. Since the onset of the coronavirus, stretching already limited budgets to pay for essential items has become even more difficult.

Our donation list is constantly evolving to meet our guests needs. Gift cards are ideal as they allow guests to shop for items they need most.
