When families arrive at Rowan House, they don’t come with a suitcase. Often, they arrive with little more than the clothes on their backs. They are in the thick of their trauma and feeling rather hopeless – but a journey to healing begins, and grows, throughout their stay.

You can be a part of that healing.

Did you know it costs $250 / person / day to support one woman or child living at Rowan House?
