Mission Statement

The mission of Rosie's Place is to provide a safe and nurturing environment to help poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives. With unconditional love and support, Rosie's Place helps women access the resources they need to lessen the burden of poverty and works one-on-one to create long term permanent and individual solutions.


Rosie's Place was founded in 1974 by Kip Tiernan as the first women’s shelter in the United States. Today, Rosie’s Place not only provides meals and shelter but also creates answers for 12,000 women a year through wide-ranging support, housing and education services.
