Rose Brooks Center

Program Summary:
Project SAFE is Rose Brooks Center’s school-based violence prevention program for children in preschool through 12th grade in Jackson County. For over 40 years, Rose Brooks Center has provided shelter and supportive services to adults and children impacted by domestic violence. Annually, Rose Brooks Center impacts approximately 14,000 local individuals through professional education and shelter, its hotline, and non-residential advocacy, clinical and prevention services.

Project SAFE carries out Rose Brooks’ mission to end the cycle of domestic violence by reaching at-risk youth in grades pre-K through 12th before they make the life choices that can reproduce the cycle of violence. The program helps students identify and develop resiliency tools and emotional management skills necessary to avoid future violence perpetration or victimization and other unhealthy, unsafe life experiences. By reaching children and young adults in schools and providing them with much-needed tools and support, they gain resources to break the cycle of violence. Rose Brooks Center first offered school-based prevention in 1997 in response to schools’ requests to support children with domestic violence trauma..
