Rose Haven has introduced me to many fine women over the years who need stability in their lives as they have suffered traumas of abuse, loss of home or other disruptive losses. Over 2400 women/children each year are served AND as little as $200 provides annual services for 1 woman/year. $200 offers day shelter, nutritious food, clothing, supplies, advocacy and place for safety, friendship and community.
That’s just the data –I return each week because Rose Haven is a grace filled place. It has given me things I didn't know and taken to me to places I didn't know I wanted to go. The most recent grace has become all about the companionship along the way. So this year I will be walking with the Kelly Klan in Rose Haven’s Reigning Roses Mothers Day Walk in honor of 3 women in my life representing 3 generations. My mother, Janet Banks, my sister Sarah Talmadge and my daughter, Kate Kelly…..3 uniquely lovely women of exceptional character who inspire me daily as a daughter, sister and mother. I’m forever grateful for their guiding light.
Please help me in supporting these women. Join our team for the fun 5k walk, create your own team or send a contribution in honor of the special women in my life for all the special women of Rose Haven. What a wonderful day of opportunity to celebrate mothers and the many women in our lives.
