Mountain Rose Safe House 90-day Program

The Mountain Rose Safe House is a comforting and welcoming temporary refuge for adults and their children who are threatened by abuse in their home. The Safe House is more than just a roof over your head, it is a 90-day empowering and supportive program offering, counseling, education, advocacy, referral, and support. Tahoe SAFE Alliance goal is to provide a safe place to stay, while residents begin to develop a future plan of action.

The 90-day program can shelter up to three families. Tahoe SAFE Alliance provides shelter, food, and day to day living essentials, allowing the families to save money towards independent living.

Transitional Housing Program

Tahoe SAFE Alliance launched the community’s first Transitional Housing Program on July 1, 2011.  Often referred to as second-stage housing, it is designed to provide qualified clients with longer-term living assistance including help with rent, furniture, utilities, and food.  This program is an extension of the Mountain Rose Safe House Program and residents will have access to therapy, support groups, parenting and financial literacy classes, and case management.

You can help make a difference in the lives of parents and children that need a safety net.  It costs $1,000 to provide safe shelter for 3 women and their children for one month.  Please consider a donation today!

For more information on either of these programs, please contact the Residential Program Manager at: 530-563-2120 or email

Tahoe SAFE Alliance will not discriminate against anyone based on actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender or disability.

Help Out


Provide Safehouse residents with assistance, support, and peer interaction. You will educate residents on a wide range of life skills, helping them cook healthy food, study for school, and facilitate art therapy, form budget plans, or practice using computers. Bilingual volunteers are encouraged. We are always looking for individuals who are “handy” and “good with tools” to help with minor repairs!
