A Safe Place

We provide over 57,000 safe nights a year for individuals and pets.

Rose Brooks Center is about saving lives. We not only protect hundreds of adults, children and their pets who need our emergency shelter to escape life-threatening abuse, but thousands of families in the community who need support and resources.

If this is an emergency, please call 911. If you are in a crisis, please call us at 816-861-6100.

Personalized Safety Plan

Before you attempt to leave or take any legal or financial steps to separate from your abuser, you should be aware that the danger of violence escalates when an individual attempts to leave. No survivor/victim has control over their partner’s violence, but you can find ways to reduce your risk of harm. This safety plan is a tool to assist you in identifying options, evaluating those options, and committing to a plan to reduce your risk when confronted with the threat of harm or with actual harm.
