THE STORY:

Once again this year we will be walking in honor of my mother, Dorothy Swarner who passed last March.

Seven years ago I had the incredible privelidge of starting to work with Rose Haven, a sanctuary for homeless, abused and prostituted women, now serving over 80 women a day.  My pride and joy is the clothing shop, where I strive to uphold each women's induvidual style and dignity.  I want every women who walks through our shop to know that they are extraordinary, beautiful and one of a kind.  I am participating in this event to honor my 96 year old Mother, Dorothy Hazel Swarner and my already in heaven mother-in-law Alta Freida James.

In 2015 we served a record 2,917 women and children who collectively visited 17,752 times during the year for services and support. Services cost just $189 per woman or child for an entire year of support from Rose Haven. Please set a goal to see how many women your team would like to help this year!

Participants are encouraged to 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 attendees to make a personal donation and/or ask others to support their team. 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 $189, the cost to serve a Rose Haven woman or child for an entire year! Set a goal to see how many women and children your team would like to help this year!

ABOUT ROSE HAVEN

 

Despite citywide efforts, homelessness in Portland remains a critical challenge. For those fortunate enough to get a temporary bed overnight, they must leave by 7am each morning.  Rose Haven fills a unique niche as one a very few shelters available for women and children during the daytime, when they have nowhere else to go for safety and support.

 

We start by providing basic services that meet their immediate need for safety, food, clothing, hygiene products, etc. Then, we offer support to help them address longer-term challenges related to employment, housing, medical and legal issues. Our goal is to empower women and their children to build sustainable lives for themselves.

 

In 2015 we served a record 2,917 women and children who collectively visited 17,752 times during the year for services and support. Services cost just $189 per woman or child for an entire year of support from Rose Haven. Please set a goal to see how many women your team would like to help this year!
