Rowan House Emergency Shelter

At Rowan House Emergency Shelter, our goal is to provide women and their children a safe environment that nourishes feelings of self-worth, lends an opportunity for healing and personal growth, and provides temporary housing while facilitating transition back into the community.

It is our intention to provide women and their children with services to foster coping skills that lead to a life free of violence.

The Rowan tree is also known as the Mountain Ash. The berries, often retained through the winter, symbolize the endurance of Life through the dark of the year and the tree itself was said to afford protection to the dwelling by which it grew. Rowan trees have traditionally been associated with peace, sanctuary, privacy and beauty. The Rowan Tree symbolizes what we at Rowan House stand for.
