Happy Mother’s Day! By purchasing Mother's Day Mystery Boxes, you have helped us make a positive impact on mothers, women, children and gender fluid folks facing the loss of their homes through poverty and/or abuse. Together, we’ve raised $812.50 and donated it to Rose Haven.

Social distancing and shelter-in-place mandates have made us more aware than ever of our interconnectedness. Combined with the cataclysmic rise in joblessness, many are facing unprecedented hardship. Women, children and gender fluid folks face distinct forms of hardships that society as whole has difficulty grappling with. Rose Haven fills the resulting gap. Taking a moment today to reflect on the small ways our interconnectedness is strengthened when we give back to our community.

Thank you!

About Rose Haven
Rose Haven is a sanctuary from the street in Portland, offering compassion, practical assistance and community during the daytime hours to women and children facing loss of home, abuse and other disruptive life experiences.

Their mission is to maintain a safe and respectful community, while providing our guests with support and services to assist them in regaining stability in their lives.
We break the cycle of homelessness by providing nutritious meals, clothing, first aid, mailing addresses, hygiene, restrooms, showers as well as educational programs and guidance through medical and social services. By meeting basic needs and building trust, Rose Haven empowers people to explore long-term change. Rose Haven’s low-barrier model makes them the first point of contact for many who are seeking social services, and they offer sanctuary where individuals and families in crisis can come to seek supplies and support to regain independence after the trauma of poverty and violence.

Snapshot of Rose Haven’s services from 2019:

  • 3,534 women and children visited Rose Haven 22,677 times for supplies and support
  • 22,712 nutritious meals were served
