Our Impact

With the help of people who believe change is possible and share our vision of justice, Rosie’s Place accomplished the following in FY19:

  • We served over 104,000 nutritionally-balanced breakfasts, lunches and dinners in our warm and cheery Dining Room.
  • Our food pantry enabled 2,000 women per month to take home 20 to 40 pounds of foods that their families prefer and enjoy.
  • Rosie’s Place’s Advocacy staff scheduled more than 15,000 appointments with guests. Advocates assist with housing, educational and employment opportunities, clothing, wellness care, transportation and emergency funds for eviction prevention and medications.
  • Approximately 300 women found sanctuary in our emergency housing, while advocates worked with them to find permanent homes and services they needed.
  • Our Housing Stabilization program worked to break the cycle of chronic homelessness. 98% of guests receiving monthly in-home support are able to stay housed and break the cycle of homelessness.
