Rose Haven is a day shelter and community center serving women, children and gender non-conforming folks experiencing the trauma of abuse, loss of home and other disruptive life challenges. They break the cycle of homelessness by providing 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, they empower their guests to explore long-term change.

At Rose Haven they are a community. Rose Haven’s operating model is equitable and inclusive, and removes barriers for women and their children, allowing them to get back on their feet. Rebekah Albert, Rose Haven’s Executive Director, was recently recognized by The City of Portland for her commitment to Equity, Inclusion and Diversity; winning a 2017 Spirit of Portland Award for her work in this area.

Rose Haven is a 501C(3) nonprofit, providing sanctuary at our current facility in NW Portland since 2007.

Additionally, we have also made it easy for you to donate directly to Rose Haven via our event registration page. Your 100% tax-deductible donation will provide shelter and safety, basic needs, stability and support for local women and children experiencing homelessness.
