Every year, Rosies Place meets thousands of poor and homeless women with thousands of unique needs and challenges.
Some can be addressed immediately and some will require a long-term process.
Below is a summary of their constellation of programs for poor and homeless women.
They offer free meals 365 days a year:
- a food pantry with non-perishable items and fresh produce
- Showers, laundry and lockers
- overnight beds for up to 21 days
- and providers who offer health and wellness care
“Rosie's Place was founded in 1974 as the first women’s shelter in the United States. Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives. ”
