As a proud parent of 3 girls, I know how difficult life can sometimes be. Recently, I joined the board for this orgainization and after walking through to see the diversity of the women and children who come here, I knew I found a great cause.
It takes an average of $200 a year to service one woman at RoseHaven.org providing services such as a meal, feminine products, clothes and even bus tickets. Along with advocacy for these women and children to help find housing, counceling or just providing a safe place to retreat.
I'm truly thankful for the opportunity to not only give back but to recieve the inspiration that all of these women and children offer and show through their efforts to overcome and take charge of their lives.
Help me help them!

Join us this Mother’s Day to walk with, or in honor of, a special woman in your life. Reigning Roses features everything needed to make this a special morning: mimosas, pastries, entertainment, prizes and a wonderful 5k walk. Together with Rose Haven guests, participants will stroll a 5k course through the streets of NW Portland, enjoying goodies along the way. Participants are asked join or create a “team” made up of friends, family and co-workers. All genders and ages welcome!
There is no minimum fee to participate, however, we ask that attendees to make a personal donation and/or ask others to support their participation. This website makes it easy to ask your friends to join your team, or make a gift to support your involvement. Our goal is to have each participant give or raise a minimum of $100 to help the women and children served by Rose Haven.
