A Thankful Thanksgiving

  Yesterday was a very special day for a very special young lady.  In February of this year, one of the first graduates from our three-month trauma intensive program at the Rose Home moved out of the Rose Home and back in with her mom. When she felt that she was ready to move on, she knew it would be tough. But we were committed to supporting her as much as she needed.  A few weeks ago, she stopped into the office for one of her follow up appointments with her case worker. She beamed as she told a few of our staff members that since she left the Rose Home she got a job, has received two promotions, saved...

October Newsletter for Alabama

Our Alabama Team has had a very exciting month of October! Not only has there been an incredible fundraiser for the Rose Center and several community outreach teachings on trauma-informed care, but the Center's enrichment and coping skills resources are continuing to grow as well! From Core Studio in Daphne, Alabama, Sarah donated her expertise and passion and lead our first yoga class at the Rose Center.

Our Alabama Director, Crystal Yarborough, was the guest speaker at the Mobile Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force Meeting...

The Diana Wallet

We are very excited to announce our new wallet, the Diana Wallet. Find it in our online store! We see Diana, Princess of Wales, born Diana Frances Spencer, as a philanthropic face of love, freedom, and justice. She has been a source of inspiration in the fight against human trafficking. Here are a few of the things we love about her: Leadership. During the 1980s, Princess Diana supported victims of AIDS and leprosy by challenging the world’s view and stigma of the diseases as being transported by touch. She demonstrated her compassionate heart for the outcasts through her literal hands-on approach by shaking their hands without a glove and challenging social stigma. Wisdom. She understood that physical health was only...
