Pamlico Rose advances programs to promote wellness, reintegration and resilience in populations such as female Veterans. Rose Haven Center of Healing in Washington, NC – providing a reintegration experience for female Veterans in recovery from substance abuse, concentrating on wellness/healthy living, resilience, and building community – is one of the initial projects of Pamlico Rose. Rose Haven, when completed in 2019, will feature a rehabilitated 1892 farmhouse, a large meditation and produce gardens, and an adjacent barn in the center of the Washington historic district. The Center will provide opportunity through activities such as gardening, yoga, and woodworking for female Veteran residents and other local Veterans to heal through healthy living. Rose Haven Center of Healing through its historic preservation and re-utilization of the Center’s infrastructure will also help foster the health and resilience of the neighborhood and community of Washington.
Pamlico Rose welcomes participation in any form to help aid in its mission of promoting community sustainability through historical preservation.
Pamlico Rose promotes research and learning development in historical preservation and community sustainability.
