Rosie's Place is a sanctuary for poor and homeless women. We provide a wide range of services -- permanent housing, overnight shelter, advocacy, meals, adult education such as GED and ESL programs, a microenterprise, a food pantry and more. We accept no government money. More than 1000 people volunteer with us each year, as well as more than 40 interns. We were the first shelter for homeless women founded in the country. We also undertake public policy work, currently focused on increasing state funding to substance abuse treatment programs.
We especially want to alert people to our newly established Kip Tiernan Education & Social Justice Fellowship, a one-year fellowship available to individuals on projects of their own choosing and design.
