Along with friendship, we provide support and material aid in times of crisis. We aim to meet the immediate basic needs of people who need emergency relief in the form of food parcels, clothing, bedding, household items, and vouchers. We act as a 'front door' to other forms of assistance by providing referrals to appropriate services or support agencies.
Rosies is non-preaching and non-discriminatory. We aim to maintain people's dignity while we encourage self reliance.
The long journey from homeless to home: Rosies patron Karl
A few months ago, Rosies gave homeless man Karl Stuart a Backpack Bed. Karl had been sleeping rough in Southport on Queensland's Gold Coast for more than two years, despite working at a combat clothing factory.
Rosies gave Karl a Backpack Bed to help him stay warm and dry while he looks for more stable accommodation. When Rosies first met Karl, we gave him a Backpack Bed - watch to see his reaction!
We are delighted to be able to tell you that since we filmed this video, Karl has found a home in country Queensland.
