Rosie Robinson, MRSS, President
The Lord gave Stan and Rosie a vision to open up a drug and alcohol center in 2007. While praying and meditating on God's Word, the name for the center was revealed.
The Brook name came from 1 Kings 17:2-6. Elijah was at the brook and the ravens fed him there. The Brook would be a place where people would find hope and love.
They were to teach them that by the Word of God, their minds would be renewed and their lives transformed.
Stan and Rosie have been married for 20 years and have 5 children.

God has helped me learn to overcome my trauma and addictions and manage my CPTSD. He has given me a passion for helping sexual abuse survivors find their strength and overcome their trauma. It is my belief that Gods love is bigger than our anger and our pian. I have worked for a suicide hotline for two years, worked in youth ministries as a leader for ten years. I also started and ran my own foundation for survivors of sexual abuse and rape called “Be Restored” for 5 years. I am currently in college to obtain my bachelor’s in psychology with a minor in criminology, and plan on continuing my education to obtain my graduate degree in clinical social work to become a licensed counselor.
