The Rose Home For Girls is the second 24-hour full-care residential programme for girls of Salaam Baalak Trust. This home was established with the generous support of Give2Asia and was inaugurated on 19th May 2010. The proposal for a second home for girls emerged out of the inspiration with the successful establishment of Arushi- shelter for girls as well as a need since hundreds of girls in difficult circumstances are in need of residential care. Rose Home is the second home of the Trust for girls but first in Delhi as “Arushi- shelter for girls” is in Gurgaon, Haryana.
The building located suitably at a residential colony and stands on a 112 gauge plot bearing the address- RZF 779/7, Street No.17, Raj Nagar Part-II (Near Dwarka Sector-8), New Delhi. This home has three floors; ground, first and second, and a basement. A Kitchen is being set-up on the roof top. The Basement of the building is being used as activity and class rooms, ground floor is the Office area cum computer and medical room, and first and second floors are dedicated as living rooms for children. There are parks nearby for sporting activities and the shelter is well connected with Delhi Metro/subway Station.
Rose Home has the capacity to accommodate 50 children. However, 35 girls in the age of 4 to 15 years are residing currently. There are fourteen girls studying in Government run schools, ten are attending Kennedy Public school and four girls are enrolled in National Open Schooling Programme and rest are pursuing non-formal education. All the girls are provided soft skills like; computer operation, life skills, communication skills apart from schooling. There are designated teachers for school subjects, sport, and computer. Counselor, house supervisors and doctor are appointed for various activities and care programme.
There are individual care plans for each girl which is monitored periodically. Case work to find out the socio-economic reasons why the children have taken extreme steps of running away or other factors that drove them to the streets are in the process to find the possibility if the children can be restored back with their families.

Housing Works (http://www.housingworks.org/) is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Their mission is to end the the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain our efforts. Through their advocacy offices in New York City, Albany, Washington D.C., Mississippi and abroad in Haiti and Puerto Rico, Housing Works fights for funding and legislation to ensure that all people living with HIV/AIDS have access to quality housing, healthcare, HIV prevention information and other life-sustaining services, as well as legal protections from stigma and discrimination. Housing Works is a grassroots organization committed to the use of non-violent civil disobedience in order to further our mission to end AIDS and homelessness.
Since 1990, we have provided a comprehensive array of services to more than 20,000 homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. We believe that providing stable housing is healthcare and is the first step toward living a long and healthy life. Supportive services include but are not limited to housing, healthcare, meals and nutritional counseling, mental health and substance use treatment, job training, and legal assistance.
Housing Works pioneered the concept of social enterprise–businesses whose profits fund the mission of a parent not-for-profit organization. This self-sustaining model provides employment opportunities to the community in addition to fundraising. Our acclaimed Housing Works Thrift Shops, Housing Works Bookstore Cafe and The Works Catering account for approximately 25% of our $43 million annual operating budget.
While Housing Works fights in particular for the inclusion and dignity of marginalized people, including active drug users, homeless people and sexual minorities, we advocate on behalf of all people living with AIDS and HIV, whatever their circumstances and wherever they live.
No Kill Los Angeles (http://nkla.org/) is an initiative of Best Friends Animal Society, bringing together passionate individuals, city shelters and an entire coalition of animal welfare organizations to end the killing of healthy and treatable pets in city shelters in Los Angeles, California, by the year 2017. Last year, more than 13,000 healthy or treatable animals were killed in Los Angeles city shelters. But together, we can bring that number to zero.
The plan is straightforward: provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so that fewer animals go into shelters, and increase adoptions so that more animals are placed into new homes.
Best Friends is providing grants to our 60 (and counting) coalition partners when they get more animals adopted than they did in the past, as well as funding spay/neuter projects for families who can’t afford to have their pets fixed.
In 2012, the NKLA Coalition’s first year of existence, deaths in Los Angeles city shelters decreased 12 months in a row, culminating in 4,200 fewer animals killed than in the year prior. Also in 2012, the NKLA Coalition facilitated 23,421 adoptions and 4,458 spay/neuter surgeries were performed.
In addition, Best Friends has two adoption facilities featuring pets from L.A. city shelters: the NKLA Pet Adoption Center (1845 Pontius Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90025) in the heart of West Los Angeles, which opened in August 2013, and the Best Friends Animal Society Pet Adoption and Spay/Neuter Center in Mission Hills (15321 Brand Boulevard, Mission Hills, CA 91345).
The NKLA initiative is poised to serve as a model for how the entire nation can become no-kill, with no healthy or treatable pet ever having to die in a shelter again simply for being unwanted. We can Save Them All™.
