After the tragic murder of her son, Rose birthed a new passion for social change. In honor of her son, Cory “Ace” Crowe, her spirit was led to establish the Ace Project, a safe place for youth and those impacted by gun-violence and trauma. The Ace Project offers a variety of services and supports to the community as it seeks to be a source of hope and healing for others. In the last two years, they have developed The Academy of Child Entrepreneurship, providing youth with the opportunity to learn invaluable business skills opening the door for future, legal, lasting legacies. The Ace Project continues to grow and develop as it learns and builds programming to fit the needs of the community it serves.
Rose is turning her pain into a powerful purpose. She is an advocate against gun violence. A voice of guidance for the youth in the community and a trusted ally for other mourning mothers. Her purpose is Peace. (People everywhere acting compassionately everyday). Rose has used her hurt to let others know there is hope and as a community, we can heal.
