Megan Rose is the CEO of Better Together, an organization that strengthens families and communities by promoting work, protecting children, and supporting families in crisis. With the help of hundreds of compassionate volunteers and church communities, Better Together builds lasting support systems that help families cope with hardships—job loss, substance abuse, homelessness, and even jail time—and ensure that children are cared for in a safe home until the family can be reunited.
Founded in 2015, Better Together has provided a voluntary and preventive alternative to foster care, serving more than 1,500 children and keeping 96% of them out of the system. Additionally, the organization’s Better Work program has helped nearly 16,000 job seekers through church-based job fairs across 10 states.
Rose has dedicated her life and career to strengthening families and reminding people of their dignity, worth, and value. With over 10 years of dedicated experience in social services, she is passionate about this important work. Today, Rose’s family hosts children in their home and approaches this ministry together.
Rose holds an undergraduate degree from Liberty University in psychology and a master’s degree in human services, with a dual concentration in executive leadership and family and group dynamics. For her work at Better Together, Rose is a recipient of Manhattan Institute’s 2019 Civil Society Awards.
