Our Mission: To provide day shelter, resources, emotional support and community connections to women, children and marginalized genders experiencing homelessness and poverty. Our Vision: A community where everyone has safety, stability, love, health and home.
Bottom Line for Portland
Rose Haven is celebrating 25 years of compassionate service as the ONLY day shelter and community center in Portland serving women, children and marginalized genders. We recently expanded into a new facility, created with trauma-informed design to restore dignity for our guests. We are healing people, and healing Portland. Invest in people, invest in Portland!
“We all hope for a brighter future, but Rose Haven gives you a chance. They bridge the gaps… helped me survive, and made all the difference in my life. They helped me get my ID, my own apartment and my own business, and now I reconnected with my son." Leslie Alexander - Rose Haven guest
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Rose Haven is a low-barrier agency that exists not to just meet basic needs, but to improve the emotional, mental and physical well-being of our guests and our community as a whole. We understand our agency exists within larger systems of oppression, and we seek to disrupt those structures through radical hospitality, advocacy on an individual and community level, and meaningful connections to resources. Recognizing the isolation and loneliness that homelessness can create, we work to hold a space where all guests can connect, have a voice and be empowered.
Guild Mortgage will match dollar for dollar up to $10,000 for every donation made to Rose Haven at giveguide.org.
