New Look, Same Mission
Our work is continually evolving and expanding to meet the needs of our guests. And so too, is our main building at 889 Harrison Avenue with extensive renovations recently completed.
Our enlarged Sitting Room now allows for more women to take respite or take part in engaging activities offered throughout the day. We built private phone and computer spaces where guests can maintain contact with family, work, and resources otherwise out of their reach. And our reconfigured laundry facilities increased capacity so that more women can utilize them each day.
As the demand for the expert help of our Legal Program, Mental Health Specialist and Recovery Support Navigator continues to rise, our growing team will be able to meet with more guests in one of the new welcoming and private meeting spaces we have created. Contracting with Elaine Construction on this work, we have also brightened and reimagined our lobby and Dining Room, the two areas that are the hub and heart of our building.
At Rosie’s Place, true to our mission to “provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives,” we take care to make sure our building is more than a facility—it’s a sanctuary.
These renovations mean that we will be able to serve more women in more ways and in the most dignified and compassionate environment possible.
