Rosie's Place Names Michele Chausse Director of Communications
(BOSTON)—Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women, has named Michele Chausse Director of Communications.
In this role Chausse will be responsible for implementing a multi-faceted communications strategy to engender greater visibility and support for the vital work of Rosie’s Place. She will oversee all aspects of public relations and traditional and online marketing communications.
“It is a great honor to contribute to an organization with the reputation and impact of Rosie’s Place,” said Chausse. “The shelter, meals, classes, self-advocacy support, housing assistance – all provided at no cost – do change lives. I am gratified to continue to work in service of women in need.”
Chausse, a nonprofit communications professional for more than 20 years, most recently headed communications and development at Health Quarters, a reproductive health agency serving low-income women, men and teens in northeastern Massachusetts.
“Michele’s background in media relations and marketing will help us share vivid stories about our guests,” said Leemarie Mosca, Director of Development at Rosie’s Place, “and communicate our mission to help them maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives.”
Since 1974 Rosie's Place, an oasis of hope and nourishment, has evolved from providing meals and shelter to poor and homeless women to creating permanent solutions through advocacy, education and affordable housing. Rosie’s Place relies solely on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations and does not accept any city, state or federal funding.
