Program Director Welcome Rose manages Auditor Training and Certification for the National PREA Resource Center, overseeing PREA Auditor Training, the Field Training Program (FTP), auditor certification, and recertification. She holds a B.S. in Criminal Justice, with emphases in corrections and law enforcement, and has more than two decades of experience in adult correctional settings.

She started her career as a correctional officer in a male prison and later spent ten combined years as a probation and parole agent in urban and rural communities. From 2007-2017, Welcome worked as an inmate appeal examiner in a state corrections agency, where she reviewed climate issues raised by adult women and men confined in state prisons. She investigated appeals on their grievances and recommended final decisions to agency leadership, focusing on liability protection and mitigation.

Welcome gained experience in raising accountability through rule development and staff training and promoted sexual safety as a mechanism for fostering safe and secure correctional climates. In 2015, she became a certified PREA auditor for adult facilities and continuously engaged in auditor learning opportunities, including participation in the PRC’s FTP for certified auditors. She later began consulting with the PRC in the Peer Review Pilot and Technical Assistance programs until she joined Impact Justice at the PRC in 2017.
