  • Learn more about our Rose Houses! 💙 

Testimonial from one of our Rose House Guests:

"I would like to say I am truly thankful for the kind support and resources you all provided for me during my stay at The Rose House in Walden, NY. Before I arrived here, I was struggling pretty badly. I needed an escape from my life back home. I needed sanctuary, peace of mind, and that’s what you gave me."

Rose Houses are 24/7/365 short-term crisis respites that are home-like alternatives to hospital psychiatric ERs and inpatient units. Guests can stay up to seven days, and they can come-and-go for appointments, jobs, and other essential needs. They are 100% operated by peers who have their own personal lived experiences.
