Rosies – Friends on the Street is a not for profit organisation with a volunteer base of over 850 active volunteers across Queensland, who provide unconditional acceptance and friendship to people who are marginalised within our community – especially people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
In a spirit of 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.
