Rose Haven Center of Healing
PRISC promotes a holistic and multidisciplinary healing approach for Veterans through a reintegration experience that includes residential living, the arts, gardening, yoga, and other strategies. PRISC promotes this enterprise through the development of a Center of Healing that includes historic preservation and the rehabilitation of historic structures. The first project, Rose Haven, involves the rehabilitation of an 1892 farmhouse as a reintegration home for female Veterans, its adjacent historic barn for use as a multipurpose center and a healing landscape that will include meditation and produce gardens. The Center of Healing will offer a platform to advance healing strategies such as master gardening and woodworking while also promoting social resilience for residents. The Center will also act as a catalyst to promote healing in the local Veteran populations. Rose Haven, and future projects like it, will be an anchor for promoting community sustainability, historic preservation, stewardship, and community engagement.
Goals for the Rose Haven Center of Healing:
- Foster a Center of Healing for residents and other local Veterans through:
- utilizing historic rehabilitation of infrastructure and healing landscape
- promoting healing strategies for residents, and local Veterans, such as urban agriculture and woodworking
- Providing a focus of support and activity to bring together local Veterans
- Provide a safe and sober living environment for female Veterans recovering from substance abuse
- Promote social resilience in residents and local Veterans
- Advance neighborhood and community sustainability through historic preservation
