The Mt. Rose Safe House is located in an undisclosed location in the North Tahoe-Truckee region. It can house up to three families at any given time and offers a safe, clean living environment for women and their children.
The Tahoe SAFE Alliance Safe House Program is a 60-day program designed to provide safety to women fleeing violent and abusive environments. Families and individuals have their own room and are rarely required to share a room. There are several common areas including a kitchen, living room, den, laundry facilities, and backyard/play area for children. Tahoe SAFE Alliance provides food, toiletries, and other daily essentials such as diapers and laundry detergent.
Each resident is assigned to an advocate when they enter shelter. Advocates provide help with attaining goals, referrals to other agencies and services, and individual and peer counseling. Residents and their children are provided with several opportunitiws to attend support groups and other special activities throughout their stay.
