Safe Housing

Tahoe SAFE Alliance owns and operates the only safe house in the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee Communities.  In 2010, 9 women and 14 children were able to use the safe house as a temporary home which enabled them to get back on their feet and begin to re-build their lives.

Mountain Rose Safe House 60-day Program

The Mountain Rose Safe House is a comforting and welcoming home where women and children come to find a refuge.  It  is an empowering program which offers a wide variety of services to those who want to start a life free of violence.

The safe house is a place where clients can collect themselves, look at their lives, assess their needs and plan for the future. It is a 60-day program that 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.

This program also offers peer counseling, licensed therapy, intimate partner violence and sexual assault education, pattern-changing techniques, therapy-like art projects, financial literacy, advocacy and accompaniment to different appointments, transportation, children’s program services and legal assistance.

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 women 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!
