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!
