The R.O.S.E. Fund (Regaining One's Self Esteem) is a New England non-profit, chartered to break the silence and the cycle of domestic violence (DV) and teen dating violence and abuse (TDVA).
We're focused on transforming the lives of survivors that have physical reminders of their abusive past. In partnership with our medical affiliates we provide female survivors of domestic abuse with access to medical and dental reconstructive procedures to help them to regain their self-esteem.
We’re also focused on transforming high schools from 'Unaware and Unprepared' to 'Informed and Effective' in fully understanding and addressing these issues. We are actively breaking the silence and the NIMBY (Not in My Backyard) myths associated with these issues on a high school by high school basis across New England. We expose these issues by 'localizing' them. We then educate, energize and empower groups of concerned parents and principals to become an active and effective part of the solution.
