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 FY16:

  • We served over 100,000 nutritionally-balanced breakfasts, lunches and dinners in our warm and cheery Dining Room.
  • Our food pantry enabled 1,900 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 1,100 appointments with guests each month. 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 Outreach program worked to break the cycle of chronic homelessness by providing in-home support to 100 guests who were at risk of becoming homeless.
