Rosie's Place was founded in 1974 as the first women's shelter in the United States. Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives. 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. Rosie's Place relies solely on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations and does not accept any city, state or federal funding.
We are seeking applicants for the Kip Tiernan Social Justice Fellowship, awarded annually to a woman to develop and carry out a special project in New England that will improve the lives of poor and homeless women. Learn more at
